The Beautiful Landscape     by: McBain, Christopher

Source: Aberdeen – William Mossman

The bonnie landscape and the sea blend in weel.
Aa the fowk hae grins on their faces,
Fishermen try tae catch some big fish tae feed their families,
Cattle wander ower hills lookin for food
Navy ships come in tae see their faimilies,
The fowk gaze at the ships comin in,
The sma hooses are aa cramped thegither
Inside there are three rooms,
The butt, the ben and the byre,
I better gang tae get some fish for supper.
