544. Song—Crowdie ever mair

 O THAT I had ne’er been married,
 I wad never had nae care,
Now I’ve gotten wife an’ weans,
 An’ they cry “Crowdie” evermair.
—Ance crowdie, twice crowdie, Three times crowdie in a day Gin ye crowdie ony mair, Ye’ll crowdie a’ my meal away.
Waefu’ Want and Hunger fley me, Glowrin’ by the hallan en’; Sair I fecht them at the door, But aye I’m eerie they come ben.
Ance crowdie, &c.
