"The Merry Muses of Caledonia"

O GIN I HAD HER

TUNE: Saw ye na my Peggy?

WBC Note:- This ballad boasts of sexual prowess and of male potency. A regular theme in "The Muses"

 



Original

Translation

O gin I had her,
Ay, gin I had her,
O gin I had her,
Black altho' she be.
I wad lay her bale,
I'd gar her spew her kail;
She ne'er soud keep a mail,
Till she dandl'd it on her knee.

She says, I am light
To manage matters right,
That I've nae might or weight
To fill a lassie's e'e.
But wad she tak a yokin',
I wad put a c - - k in;
A quarter o't to slokin,
I wad frankly gie.

Oh if I had her,
If only I had her,
Oh if I had her,
Black although she is.
I would put her in trouble,
I'd make her morning sick;
She never would keep down a meal
Till she bounced it on her knee.

She says, I am light
To manage matters right,
That I've no might or weight
To fill a girl's eye.
But would she have sex,
I would put a c - - k in;
A quarter of it to satisfy,
I would frankly give.
