Tune: Cauld kail Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 162.
There's cauld kail in Aberdeen,
And castocks in Strathbogie, When ilka lad maun hae his lass,
Then fye, gie me my coggie.
Chorus. My coggie, Sirs, my coggie, Sirs, I cannot want tny coggie: I wadna gie my three-girr'd cap, For ier a quean on Bogie.
There's Johnie Smith has got a wife That scrimps him o' his coggie,
If she were mine, upon my life I wad douk her in a bogie.
