Schule Langsyne     by: Blackhall, Sheena

Tune: John Brown's Body

The schule bell's ringin aa the bairns are merchin in x3
An the dominie is screivin on the boord

Oot cam the slaties wi the sticks o chakk sae fite x3
Fur there's tables sums an spellin tae be dane

Coorse bairns are skelpit wi the tawse, the tawse the tawse x3
An their hauns they are dirlin reid an sair

Chant chant the tables poor the ink intae the wells x3
An ye mauna blot yer paper wi yer nib
