Tune: Traditional
Verse 1 & 2 by Robert Burns

Up in the mornin’s no for me
Up in the mornin early
When aa the hills are covered in sna
I‘m sure it’s winter fairly

Cauld blows the wind frae East tae West
The drift is driving sairly
Sae loud and shrill I hear the blast
I‘m sure it‘s winter fairly

Up in the mornin’s no for me
My bed is warm and cosy
I like tae dream aa day and nicht
An gie ma ted a bosie

I crawl doonstairs at breakfast time
I‘m sleepy and I‘m dozy
But I‘ve tae trauchle awa tae school
An leave ma fire sae rosy
