Carolina Oliphant, (Lady Nairne), 1766-1845
Ye're welcome, leddies, ane and a',|
Ye're welcome to our County Ha',
Sae will ye look when buskit braw,
To grace our County Meeting!
An' gentlemen, ye're welcome, too,
In waistcoats white and tartan too,
Gae seek a partner, mak' yere bow,
Syne dance our County Meeting.
2. There's the Major, and his sister too,
3. An' there's our Member, and Provost Whig,|
Our Doctor in his yellow wig,
Wi' his fat wife, wha takes a jig,
Aye at our County meeting.
Miss Betty, too, I see her there,
Wi' her sonsy face, and bricht red hair,
Dancin' till she can dance nae mair
At our County Meeting.
4. Afore we end, strike up the spring
