Subject: Kilts Society Ball

I would be very grateful if you could help me.

I have been looking for a song for many years and have had no luck. My grandfather used to sing it to my mother. He was from Scotland and my mother believes is was a Bothy Ballard or a Corn Kister.

All I have is the name of the song (I think it is) -"Kilts Society Ball" .

Some of the words go like this:

"There was hairy knees and bald knees and white and feeling cauld knees, a sight you've never seen at the Kilts Society Ball. They danced the highland, danced the fling, as folks fa far and wide, displaying all their faults at this the trousers hide."

Yes sounds very strange.

If you can't help me to find all the words, do you know anyone that could?

Thank you for your time. Elaine. :-)

The Kilt Society Ball was sung by Rab the Rhymer ( Dr Douglas Raitt - who was a marine biologist at Aberdeen Marine Laboratory in the 1930s and early 1940s.) It featured in a broadcast of The Reel Blend on BBC Radio Aberdeen by Robbie Shepherd in March or April 2009.
