"The Merry Muses of Caledonia"

JOHNIE SCOTT

TUNE: O the Broom

WBC Note:- This piece deals with the frequent fascination with the female genitalia and pubic hair. Metaphorically it describes the weaving of pubic hair to make garments of clothing.

Translation

Whare will we get a coat to Johnie Scott,
Amang us maidens a'?
Whare will we get a coat to Johnie Scott,
To mak' the laddie braw?

There's your c ? ? t?hair,
and there's my c ? ? t?hair,
An' we'll twine it wondrous sma;
An' if waft be scarce, we'll cow our arse,
To mak him kilt an' a'.

Where will we get a coat for Johnie Scott,
Among us maidens all?
Where will we get a coat for Johnie Scott,
To make the man look nice?

There's your c ? ? t?hair,
and there's my c ? ? t hair,
And we'll twine it wonderfully fine;
And if wool be scarce, we'll trim our buttocks,
To make him a kilt as well.
