OH! MISTER MACPHERSON
 
div
 
Macpherson was a Scotchsman, and he courted bonnie Mary
He went and joined the navy, left the hills of old Glengary
The lass he left behind him nearly wore her heart away
She'd dream about him every night, and was sighing all the day.

Chorus: 'Oh! Mister Macpherson, you're a peculiar person
Why did you leave your bonnie Mary
Awa' on the hills of old Glengary
Mister Macpherson, you said you'd loved me true
Come back and tickle me, Mac
The same as you used to do.'


She found out where his ship was, and she sent a loving letter
She said, 'Why did you go to sea? You ought to know much better
I suppose you'll sail to foreign parts now you're a jolly tar
And it breaks my heart to think of it, for I know what sailors are.'

Chorus: 'Oh! Mister Macpherson, you're a peculiar person
Why did you leave your bonnie Mary
Awa' on the hills of old Glengary
Mister Macpherson, you said you'd loved me true
Come back and tickle me, Mac
The same as you used to do.'


She said, 'The times we used to have, oh, surely you remember
We used to have some cuddles in the middle of December.
You used to call me 'baby' and you chased me round the place
And ev'ry time you kissed me, Mac, you nearly washed my face.

Chorus: 'Oh! Mister Macpherson, you're a peculiar person
Why did you leave your bonnie Mary
Awa' on the hills of old Glengary
Mister Macpherson, you said you'd loved me true
Come back and tickle me, Mac
The same as you used to do.'
