As the nicht fas in,
An the birdies creep awa

We’re twinkling in the sky
As you rin awa tae see yer Da.

We’re shinin on the water still,
We’re feelin aul an we’re feeling ill.

We dinna ken fin the sun’ll shine
We could be waitin a lang, lang time.

As the sun is comin ower oor heid,
We’re dein doon an noo we’re deid.

It is noo bricht an bonny
As we’re shinin bricht in aa oor glory.
