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.
