No. 227. Landlady, count the lawin.
Tune: Hey tutti, taiti Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 170.
Landlady, count the lawin, The day is near the dawin; Ye're a' blind drunk, boys, And I'm but jolly fou.
Chorus. Hey tutti, taiti, How tutti, taiti, Hey tutti, taiti, Wha'sfou now?
Cog, and ye were ay fou, Cog, and ye were ay fou, I wad sit and sing to you, If ye were ay fou !
Weel may we a' be! Ill may we never see! God bless the king And the companie !
No. 228. A' the lads o' Thornie-bank.
Tune: Ruffian's rant (see No. 239).
A' the lads o' Thornie-bank,
When they gae to the shore o' Bucky,
They'll step in an' tak a pint Wi' Lady Onlie, honest lucky.
Chorus. Lady Onlie, honest lucky,
Brews guid ale at shore o' Bucky ; I wish her sale for her guid ale, The best on a' the shore o' Bucky.
Her house sae bien, her curch sae clean—
I wat she is a dainty chuckie, And cheery blinks the ingle-gleede
O' Lady Onlie, honest lucky!
