The Day we went to Rothesay, O = 120 8 6 One Hogmany at Glesca Fair There was me, mysel' and sev'ral mair We a' went off tp hae a tear And spend the nicht in Rothesay, O. We wander'd through the Broomilaw Thro' wind and rain and sleet and snaw And at forty minutes after twa We got the lenghth of Rothesay, O. Chorus: A dirrum a doo a dum a day A dirrum a doo a daddy, O A dirrum a doo a dum a day The day we spent in Rothesay, O. A sodger lad named Rutherglen Will Wha's regiment lyin' at Barn Hill Went off wi' a tanner to get a gill In a public hoose in Rothesay, O. Said he, "By Christ, I'd like to sing!" Says I," Ye'll no do sic a thing." He said, "Clear the room and I'll mak' a ring And I'll fecht them a' in Rothesay, O!" In search o' lodgins we did slide To find a place where we could hide There was eichty-twa o' us inside In a single room in Rothesay, O. We a' lay doon to tak' oor ease When somebody happened for to sneeze, And he wakened half a million fleas In that single room in Rothesay, O There were several different kinds o' bugs Some had feet like dyers' clogs And they say on the bed and they cockit' their lugs And cried, "Hurrah for Rothesay, O!" I said, "I think we should elope" So we went and jouned the Band O' Hope But the polis wouldna' let us stop Anither nicht in Rothsey, O. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
