"Haste ye Back":

Haste ye back, we love you dearly,

Call again you're welcome here.

May your days be free from sorrow,

And your friends be ever near.

   May the paths o'er which you wander,

Be to you a joy each day.

Haste ye back we loue you dearly,

   Haste ye back on friendship's way. (Copied)

Facail bho An Cuimean (Words from The Cumming

ODE TAE THE HAGGIS

 

O'HAGGIS; Prince o' the Puddin' Race!

Ye'd be ashamed tae show yer face,

For whit they've done tae Rabbie's meal,

Wak mak ye feel nae sae weel.

 

Proud Haggis, once sewn in skin;

Noo pushed and prodded intae a tin.

And even worse, in fact it's drastic;

They're wrapping it up, noo in plastic!

 

The lowly tattie; Oh, whit a shame;

In powdered form it's no the same.

And turnip tae; it's dehydrated.

Jist add watter-it's ower-rated!

 

Thank goodness whisky's no been

dehydrated,

Or poor Rabbie, tae Russia wid hae emigrated!
