Ye're Ma Wee Gallus Bloke Nae Mair

Ye're Ma Wee Gallus Bloke Nae Mair
     Oh, ye're ma wee gallus bloke nae mair.
     Oh, ye're ma wee gallus bloke nae mair.
     Wi' yer bell-blue strides,
     An' yer bunnet tae the side,
     Oh, ye're ma wee gallus bloke nae mair.
     As I went by the sweetie works, ma hert began tae beat,
     Watchin' a' the fact'ry lassies walkin' doon the street,
     Wi' their flashy, dashy petticoats, their flashy, dashy
        shawls,
     Five an' tanner gutty boots, "Oh we're big gallus
        molls!"
