THE SCOT'S LAMENT
written by Kitty Kennedy Allen & Kennedy Allen performed by Will Fyffe I'm a Scot and I'm Married, two things I can't help, I'm Married... but I have no wife.... For she bolted and left me... but that's nothing new, It happens sa often in life. So I journeyed ta London, for that's where she'd gone With her lover to hide her disgrace, And though London's a big town I swore I'd not rest Till I'd searched every street in the place. And I tramped... how I tramped... weary mile upon mile, Till exhausted and ready to drop. I would not give in, so I climbed on a bus, And took a front seat on the top. We came to a halt in a brightly lit square To my joy, there ma lassie I spied, Looking weary and worn but thank Heaven... alone, From my heart, 'Maggie, Maggie!' I cried. She gasped with delight as I rose from ma seat, But a harrowing thought made me wince, I couldna get off... for I'd paid ma fare, And I've never caught sight of her since.
