Three Craws     by: Traditional

Three craws sat upon a waa,
Sat upon a waa
Sat upon a waa
Three craws sat upon a waa
On a cauld an frosty mornin.

The first craw wis greetin for his ma
Greetin for his ma
Greetin for his ma.
The first craw wis greetin for his ma
On a cauld an frosty mornin

The second craw fell an broke his jaa,
Fell an broke his jaa
Fell an broke his jaa
The second craw fell an broke his jaa
On a cauld an frosty mornin.

The third craw cudna flee at aa
Cudna flee at aa
Cudna flee at aa
The third craw cudna flee at aa
On a cauld an frosty mornin

The fourth craw wisna there at aa
Wisna there at aa
Wis na there at aa
The fourth craw wisna there at aa
On a cauld an frosty mornin.

That's aa I ken aboot the craws
I ken aboot the craws
I ken aboot the craws
That's aa I ken aboot the craws
On a cauld an frosty mornin


Ha! Ha! Ye thocht we wis awa
Thocht we wis awa
Thocht we wis awa
Ha! Ha! Ye thocht we wis awa
On a cauld an frosty mornin
