Johnie Lad, Cock Up Your Beaver

      When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town,      He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown;      But now he has gotten a hat and a feather,      Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!       Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush,      We'll over the border, and gie them a brush;      There's somebody there we'll teach better behaviour,      Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!
