Dinna steal milk
Fae people’s doors.
I dinna ken
Fit wye ye did it
Dinna dee it again!

Dinna get angry
I’m sorry, Mam
For bein naughty
An deein wrang
Because we’re poor
I wis thirsty
Oor milk is soor
Theirs is lovely

I really didna want tae
I kent I’d get the blame
I dinna wint tae gae
I’d raither bide at hame
They micht be angry
They micht be mean
They micht hit me
Sae I’m nae keen!
