PAPER OF PINS (4)

I'll gie tae you a pennyworth o preens
Tae fasten up your flounces and ither bonny things
If you'll walk, if you'll talk If you'll walk wi me

I'll no hae your pennyworth o preens
Tae fasten up my flounces and ither bonny things
And I'll no, and I'll no And I'll no walk wi you

I'll gie tae you a yalla hairy muff
Tae keep your handies warm when the wither's cauld and rough

I'll no hae your yalla hairie muff
Tae keep my handies warm when the weather's cauld and rough

I'll gie tae you a cosy armchair
Tae rest yoursel in when your beens are auld and sair

I'll no hae your cosy armchair
Tae rest mysel in when ma beens are auld and sair

I'll gie tae you the keys o my hert
And frae you I'll never never part
If you'll walk, if you'll talk
If you'll walk wi me

O but I'll tak the keys o your hert
And frae you I'll never never part
And I'll walk, and I'll talk
And I'll walk wi you

In 1951 Alan Lomax recorded from Mr and Mrs John Mearns this superior
version of a duet that the Opies consider a 'Singing Game'
(The Singing Game p140).
