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.       Chorus-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.
