 The scenery of Baldovan
Is most lovely to see,
Near by Dighty Water,
Not far from Dundee.
'Tis health for any one To be walking there, O'er the green swards of Baldovan, And in the forests fair.
There the blackbird and the mavis Together merrily do sing In the forest of Baldovan, Making the woodlands to ring.
'Tis delightful to hear them On a fine summer day, Carolling their cheerful notes So blythe and so gay.
Then there's the little loch near by, Whereon can be seen every day Numerous wild ducks swimming And quacking in their innocent play.
