Creepy een glower at ye
As ye look at her
Her face shows foo feart she is o somethin
White-like yalla teeth, grippin thegither

Her een wide open
Like she kens somethin’s gaun tae happen
She looks caul an shivery
Her een are big an blaik
Her lips are reid an shaky

Her chikks are white’s a ghaist
As if she wis kickit in the wame
Her teeth look like they’re chitterin
She looks like she’s gaun tae be sick!
