A man caad William Mosman painted Aiberdeen.
He used different colours,
Like reid, blue, an green.
There’s somethin that I winner
Please cud ye tell me foo
The lassies walked aroon the streets
Wi their dresses in the styoo?

The mannies wore hats with affa funcy suits
An they went wi their quinies
They were affa funcy bruits!
But aa the ither folk were wirkin aa day,
They dinna ever get aa the days pay.
