‘Bohella’s Retairn’

Halloo th’ hoose! Ye’re graund tae see!
‘Tis manny as missed ye, wee auld man!
Is it compnay-keepin’ as ye’d be?
A baeat haed-scratchit, an on’y ye can!

An ye’re thankin’ o’ Maergrat,
Ach, I’m shamed tae report
That I left her tae cat
In a fish-naetter’s port.

Sweet Bess, sure she marrit,
An’ Jane came on clapset
While Betty’s sae crabbit
As she baits et an’ traps et.

Aye, sunnit days hae passed ye bye,
Th’ while as ye hae slumbert,
But as ye’re eyeset tae th’ sky,
Let’s off tae Widdew Humbert!

She whinnets laike an upkept child,
An’ she snurts a gromblit snore,
But ‘tis spake o’ her she buckles wild,
An’ haes a lassie’s wemble-bore!
