The Reel O' Stumpie
Hap and rowe the feetie o't chorus, or repeated after last I thocht I was a maiden fine verse.) 'Til I heard the greetie o't. My daddy he was a fiddler fine My minnie he made a mankie, O, And I myself a thumpin' queen Wha danced the Reel O' Stumpie, O. Dance and sing, dance and sing, Hey, the merry dancing, O, And all the love-locks wavin' 'round And all the bright eyes glancin', O The pipes come wi' their gladsome note And then with dool and dumpie, O, But the lightest tune to a maiden's foot Is the gallant Reel O' Stumpie, O. The gossip cup, the gossip cup The kimmer clash and caudle, O, The waning moon the wanton loon The cutty stool and cradle, O. Douce dames wha hae their bairn-time borne Sae dinna glower sae glumpie, O, Cocks love the morn and crows love corn And maids the Reel of Stumpie, O.
