My Brick and Piece of Lumber

Mighty proud was I with me lumber in one hand my brick me carried in the other I placed the brick in the barn yard tall side for gained height balanced the lumber board on top I am silent and of Scottish temperament You see folks my feathered pet cock was cock a doodle do-ing all day long yapping and yelling ranting and raving the other farm animals had all had enough action demanded I place the ol koileach at the end of one side of the board all while smiling at the brainless duine beag immediately I jumped on the other end sending that whiny ol cock mid air into the sea he drowned Ah what a wonderful day ladies I shall meander onwards among the heather and moor my brick magically transformed to fine woody scotch oh what tales I shall tell if tomorrow ever comes
