Wee Sandy Waugh

Wee Sandy Waugh
    I hae a wee bit Hielandman,
     His name is Sandy Waugh;
     He sits upon a puddock-stool,
     An fine he sups his broth.
        Sing hey, my bonny Hielandman,
        My Sandy trig an braw;
        Come prinkum prankum, dance wi me,
        A cock-a-leerie-law.
     There's herrin in the siller Forth,
     An salmon in the Tay,
     There's puffins on the auld Bass,
     An bairns that greet a day.
        Sing hey, my bonny Hielandman,
        My Sandy trig an braw;
        Come prinkum prankum, dance wi me,
        A cock-a-leerie-law.

     Montgomerie SNR (1946), 116 (no. 146); with music in Moffat
     50 TSNR (1933),18.  Prinkum prankum probably means "fine
     attire", but could refer to a dance at least 300 years
     old, otherwise called "The Cushion Dance", or "Joan
     Sanderson".  A puddock-stool is a toadstool, or
     mushroom.
