The Broon Coo     by: Traditional

The broon coo's broken oot an etten aa the neeps: 3 times
Did iver ye see sic an ill-trickit beast?

The broon coo's broken oot she's in amang the corn: 3 times
Haud yer in aboot, or she'll deet again the morn.

The broon coo's broken oot she's in amang the strae: 3 times
She's fleggit aa the hennies an caad them aff the lay

The broon coo's broken oot she's chasin aa the dyeuks: 3 times
They're rinnin roon the fairmyaird hidin in the neuks.

The broon coo's broken oot she's chased the yowes awa: 3 times
I'm gaun tae catch her an pit her in her staa!
