TWA CORBIES

As I were walking all alane

I met twa corbies making a main

And tane unto tither did say-o

Where shall we gang and dine in the day-o

Where shall we gang and dine in the day?

 

In behind yon auld fell dyke

I wot there lies a new-slain knight

And naebody cares that he lies dead-o

But his hawk and his hound and his lady fair-o

But his hawk and his hound and his lady fair

 

His hound is tae the huntin’ gane

His hawk tae fetch the wild fowl hame

His lady’s taen anither mate-o

So we maun make our dinner sweet-o

So we maun make our dinner sweet

 

Ye’ll sit on his white hause bane

And I’ll pike out his bonny blue een

Wi’ many a lock o’ his gowden hair-o

We’ll theek our nest when it grows bare-o

We’ll theek our nest when it grows bare

 

Mony a one for him makes main

But nane shall ken where he is gane

O’er his white bones when they are bare-o

The wind shall blow forever mair-o

The wind shall blow forever mair
