Elphinstone Kist   Rhymes bi Bairns

The Haggis     by: Runcie, Shona

We used tae rin aroon the hills
Free fae care n’ worry
Until some man caad Burns
Thocht we'd mak an affa tasty supper

Bit this wisnae quite sae bad
Until he went an deet
An noo every January
We hiv tae ging an hide
As a o Scotland celebrates
Rabbie's birth
Wi us in pride o place!
