From the Merry Muses of Caledonia
There was a jolly gauger,|
A gaugin' he did ride,
And he has met a beggar
Doon by yon river side,
And we'll gang nae mair a-rovin'
Wi' ladies tae the wine,
When a beggar wi' her meal-pyocks
Can fidge her tail sae fine.
2. Amang the broom he laid her,
3. My blessings on thee, laddie,|
Thou's done my turn sae weel,
Wilt thou accept, dear laddie,
My pyock and pickle meal?
4. Sae blythe the beggar took the bent,
5. My blessings on the gauger,
