ALL THE LADIES FELL IN LOVE WITH SANDY
 
div
 

Sandy was a hielan' man
Quite a dandy hielan' man
Left his kilt at home one night and put some trousers on.
To a hielan' ball he went
Such a lovely time he spent
No mistake about it Sandy looked a perfect don.
They all danced, and played at games as well
Sandy was the big attraction with each charming belle.

Chorus: All the ladies fell in love with Sandy
Sandy seemed to captivate them all.
No mistake he looked a proper dandy
At the All Scots' Ball.
At hiding the button then they all played
Sandy thought it just the thing
But going home that night
Sandy's trousers looked a sight
Tied up with a little bit of string.

Poor old Sandy had to roam
With a lot of ladies home
Not a single button on his tartan trousers too.
Suddenly oh what a joke
That one piece of string there broke
One young girl said Sandy lad
You're looking bad it's true.
Sandy said I've troubles to the hilt.
I've just been thinking lassie that I wish I'd brought my kilt.

Chorus: For all the ladies fell in love with Sandy
Sandy seemed to captivate them all.
'Pon me soul he looked a proper dandy
At the All Scots' Ball.
At hiding the button then they all played
Sandy thought it just the thing
But going home that night
Sandy's trousers looked a sight
Tied up with a little bit of string.
