See efter this moagur's aa pit by

moanan we'll hae a wee daunner ootbye

Thurra place roon ahint St Vuncent's Lane
whaur naebody's gauny come preein
n we'll tak aff oor claes n pit oan oor wings
n dae a wee bit o fleein.

Ah'll be the corbie n ye'll be the gull
ye wis aye a bit o a gannet
n we'll wheech ower the chumneys, aye so we wull
noo wheesht, no a whusper tae Janet . . .
