This is No Ma Ain Hoose

This is No Ma Ain Hoose

     O this is no ma ain hoose,
     Ma ain hoose, ma ain hoose;
     O this is no ma ain hoose,
     I ken by the biggin o't;

     For breid and cheese are my door cheeks,
     Are my door cheeks, are my door cheeks;
     For breid and cheese are my door cheeks,
     And pancakes the riggin o't.

     O this is no ma ain wean,
     Ma ain wean, ma ain wean;
     O this is no ma ain wean,
     I ken by the greetie o't.

     I'll tak the curchie aff ma heid,
     Aff ma heid, aff ma heid;
     I'll tak the curchie aff ma heid;
     And row't aboot the feetie o't.
