Elphinstone Kist   Rhymes bi Bairns

Scotland     by: Forbes, Laura

Ma mither says we're aff for a walk
Tae look at the bonnie countryside
At first I think 'Oh no,'
Bit then I realise
Whit a lovely place Scotland really is.

Fan we're aff on oor traivels
An I look aboot
I can see aa the bonnie things
There's deer on the hills
There's highland coos in the field
An fan I look up
I can see the lovely Scottish eagle.

Bit as I'm walking up ma garden gate
I think whit a wonderful day I've had
Don't you think we're rather lucky
Cause ye canna see aa this in England
Can ye?
