Folk and Traditional Song Lyrics:
Donald Whaurs Yer Troosers
Donald Whaur's Yer Troosers?
1. I've just come down from the Isle of Skye,
I'm no very big an' I'm awfy shy,
And the lassies shout when I go by
"Hey Donald, whaur's yer troosers?"
Let the winds blow high, let the winds blow low
Through the streets in ma kilt I go.
All the lassies shout "Hello,
hey Donald, whaur's yer troosers?"
2. A lassie took me tae a ball
And it was slippery in the hall
And I was feared that I would fall
For I hadnae on ma troosers.
3. I once went down tae London town
And I had some fun on the Underground -
a lady bent down tae pick up half a crown and said
"Donald, where are your trousers?"*
4. The lassies want me, everyone
Just let them catch me if they can -
Ye cannae get the breeks off a Hieland man,
And I don't wear ma troosers.
5. I had a cold and ma nose was raw
I hadnae handkercheif at a'
So I lifted up ma kilt just tae give it a blaw
WHEW, DONALD, WHAUR'S YER TROOSERS?
6. Tae wear the kilt is my delight,
And it's not wrong, I know it's right.
How the folks back home would get a fright
If they saw me wearin' troosers
* The lady's words here should be sung in best posh English accent to
contrast with the Scots in the rest of the song.
