Epitaph For Mr. William Michie
Schoolmaster of Cleish Parish, Fifeshire.
Here lie Willie Michie's banes; O Satan, when ye tak him, Gie him the schulin o' your weans, For clever deils he'll mak them! Boat song-Hey, Ca' Thro' Up wi' the carls o' Dysart, And the lads o' Buckhaven, And the kimmers o' Largo, And the lasses o' Leven. Chorus.-Hey, ca' thro', ca' thro', For we hae muckle ado. Hey, ca' thro', ca' thro', For we hae muckle ado; We hae tales to tell, An' we hae sangs to sing; We hae pennies tae spend, An' we hae pints to bring. Hey, ca' thro', &c. We'll live a' our days, And them that comes behin', Let them do the like, An' spend the gear they win. Hey, ca' thro', &c.
