Elphinstone Kist   Bairn Rhyme

World War 1     by: Wheeler, Les

Come an list, ma bonnie laddies, come an list!
Yer croft an fishie-boat- ye'll niver miss't
Come an fecht the savage Hun,
An fan the War is done,
Ye'll come hame a hero, son.
Come an list!

Never fear, ma bonnie laddies, never fear
That the price that ye micht pye is ower dear:
Kiss fareweel yir ain wee lass,
She’ll be prood as you march past
Never fear.
