CAA CAA THE ROPIE

TAE BUY A CAKE 0 SOAPIE
TAE DICHT YER LITTLE DOCKIE (trad)

I hae a ropie, I hae twa
Caa the ropie ower an ower
Skip up, skip doon an dinna faa
Caa the ropie ower an ower.

I hae a kite wi a tail sae lang
Caa the ropie, ower an ower
It daunces up far the birdies gang
Caa the ropie, ower an ower.


Leave the shute, lowp aff the swings
Caa the ropie ower an ower
I hae a bike wi a bell that rings!
Caa the ropie ower an ower


I hae a drum an a tooteroo
Caa the ropie, ower an ower
An a wee toy bear fae the Embro zoo
Caa the ropie ower an ower.

I hae a yo yo, I hae a bat
Ca the ropie, ower an ower
I hae a fussle an a witchie's hat
Ca the ropie ow'er an ower
