How Dan Dilly Dow?

How Dan Dilly Dow :

How dan, dilly dow,

Hey dow, dan,

Weel were ye're minnie.

An' ye were a man.

Ye wad hunt an' hawk,

An' hand her o' game,

An' water your daddie's horse

When he cam' hame.

How dan, dilly dow,

Hey dan, floors,

Ye'se lie i' your bed

Till eleven hours.

[Pg 134]If at eleven hours

You list to rise,

Ye'se hae your dinner dight

In a new guise.

Laverocks' legs,

And titlins' taes,

And a' sic dainties

My mannie shall hae.
