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

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.
