82. Song—Kissing my Katie

by
 O MERRY hae I been teethin’ a heckle,
 An’ merry hae I been shapin’ a spoon;
O merry hae I been cloutin’ a kettle,
 An’ kissin’ my Katie when a’ was done.
O a’ the lang day I ca’ at my hammer, An’ a’ the lang day I whistle and sing; O a’ the lang night I cuddle my kimmer, An’ a’ the lang night as happy’s a king.
Bitter in dool I lickit my winnins O’ marrying Bess, to gie her a slave: Blest be the hour she cool’d in her linnens, And blythe be the bird that sings on her grave! Come to my arms, my Katie, my Katie; O come to my arms and kiss me again! Drucken or sober, here’s to thee, Katie! An’ blest be the day I did it again.
