DOWN IN THE HOWE O THE MEARNS

 By P4-7

You will love it, come and see.

It will be no mystery,

The Howe is full of history,

Down in the Howe o the Mearns.

 

The Romans came in 84,

To fight and build and trade and roar,

After that came plenty more,

Down to the Howe o the Mearns.

 

The hills murmur quietly,

We've been here eternally,

With green grass and brown trees

Down in the Howe o the Mearns.

 

Red roe deer are running free,

Eating holly for their tea,

If you come you will see,

Here in the Howe o the Mearns.

 

We wake up at the loud alarm,

To start our work down on the farm,

Doesn't do us any harm,

Down in the Howe o the Mearns.

 

In between the hills you'll meet,

Lots of beautiful fields of wheat,

In the spring the lambs will bleat,

Down in the Howe o the Mearns.

 

Plant some tatties in a drill,

Pick a yellow daffodil,

Eat strawberries 'til you're ill,

Down in the Howe o the Mearns.

 

 

 

THE UNSINKABLE SHIP

By P4-7

Based on an old song

They built the Titanic in the shipyard in Belfast

Four fine funnels and three flag masts

Too many portholes for anyone to count

It was sad when that great ship went down

 

It was sad, it was sad

It was sad when that great ship went down

The band kept on playing as the lifeboats sailed away

It was sad when that great ship went down

 

It made its maiden voyage in the year of 1912

But little did they know it would hit an icy shelf

The captain stayed on board when people saved themselves

It was sad when that great ship went down

 

The White Star Line said ‘This ship can never sink’

But they were oh so wrong – some people never think

And over a thousand poor folk drowned in the drink

It was sad when that great ship went down


 

WEE BENNIE’S STEAK PIE

By P4-7

Tune : Aa That Ere Ma Jinny had

 

Aw that wee Bennie had, Wee Bennie had, wee Bennie had

Aw that wee Bennie had was just 5p

 

He went to the co-op shop, the co-op shop, the co-op shop

He went to the co-op shop, tae buy a steak pie

 

The steak pie was out of date, out of date, out of date

The steak pie was out of date, baked in 1903

 

A hundred and eleven years, eleven years, eleven years

A hundred and eleven years, not a good buy

 

Ben said tae himsel, tae himself, tae himsel

Ben said tae himsel, ‘If I eat that ah’ll dee’

 

The man at the counter, the counter, the counter

The man at the counter said ‘It’s a relic of history’

 

It sailed on the Titanic, Titanic, Titanic

It sailed on the Titanic, and floated home over the sea



THE WORLD MUST BE COMING TO AN END

by P4-7

We sent her for cheese, oh aye, oh aye

We sent her for cheese, oh aye, oh aye

We sent her for cheese, and she fell and skint her knees

Oh, the world must be coming to an end, oh aye

 

We sent her for butter, and she fell into the gutter

 

We sent her for bread, but instead she went to bed


We sent her for eggs, she cracked them on her legs


We sent her for milk, she nearly kissed an elk


We sent her for wood, she came back in a mood


We sent her for cherries, she got eaten by some berries
