544. Song—Crowdie ever mair
 
 
O THAT I had ne’er been married,
  I wad never had nae care,
Now I’ve gotten wife an’ weans,
  An’ they cry “Crowdie” evermair.
 
Chorus.—Ance crowdie, twice crowdie,        5
  Three times crowdie in a day
Gin ye crowdie ony mair,
  Ye’ll crowdie a’ my meal away.
 
Waefu’ Want and Hunger fley me,
  Glowrin’ by the hallan en’;        10
Sair I fecht them at the door,
  But aye I’m eerie they come ben.
            Ance crowdie, &c.
