To the Beggin' I Will Go
(Marjorie Kennedy-Frazer, Kenneth Macleod)

If the beggin' be as good a trade
  As I have heard them say,
It's time that I was on the road
  And joggin' doon the brae,
To the beggin' I will go, will go,
  To the beggin' I will go.

And if a' the time we'll gang awa'
  I'll let my hair grow lang,
I will not pare my nails at a'
  For the beggars wear them lang,
To the beggin' I will go, will go,
  To the beggin' I will go.

I'll gang to the tailors,
  They call him Arnie Gray;
I'll gat him mak' a coat to me
  That will help me night and day,
To the beggin' I will go, will go,
  To the beggin' I will go.

And if there be a weddin'
  And me chance to be there;
I'll rise amang the weddin' folk
  And bless the happy pair,
To the beggin' I will go, will go,
  To the beggin' I will go.

It's some'll give me beef and breed,
  And some'll give me cheese,
And out amang the weddin' folk
  I'll gather bawbees,
To the beggin'I will go, will go,
  To the beggin' I will go.

And if a'come on as weel's a'like
  It's I'll come back and tell;
But gin a gin a dae that
   I'll keep it to mysel',
To the beggin' I will go, will go,
  To the beggin' I will go.
