I HAD A WEE COCK

1.
I had a wee cock, and I loved it well,
I fed my cock on yonder hill;
My cock, lily-cock. lily-cock, coo;
Every one loves their cock, why should not I love
my cock too?

I had a wee hen, and I loved it well,
I fed my hen on yonder hill;
My hen, chuckie, chuckie,
My cock, lily-cock, lily-cock, coo;
Every one loves their cock, why should not I love
my cock too?

I had a wee duck, and I loved it well,
I fed my duck on yonder hill;
My duck, wheetie, wheetie,
My hen, chuckie, chuckie,
My cock, lily-cock, lily-cock, coo;
Every one loves their cock, why should not I love
my cock too?

I had a wee sheep, and I loved it well,
I fed my sheep on yonder hill;
My sheep, maie, maie,
My duck, wheetie, wheetie,
My hen, chuckie, chuckie,
My cock, lily-cock, lily-cock, coo;
Every one loves their cock, why should not I love
my cock too?

I had a wee dog, and I loved it well,
I fed my dog on yonder hill;
My dog, bouffie, bouffie,
My sheep, maie, maie,
My duck, wheetie, wheetie,
My hen, chuckie, chuckie,
My cock, lily-cock, lily-cock, coo;
Every one loves their cock, why should not I love
my cock too?

I had a wee cat, and I loved it well,
I fed my cat on yonder hill;
My cat, cheetie, cheetie,
My dog, bouffie, bouffie,
My sheep, maie, maie,
My duck, wheetie, wheetie,
My hen, chuckie, chuckie,
My cock, lily-cock, lily-cock, coo;
Every one loves their cock, why should not I love
my cock too?

I had a wee pig, and I loved it well,
I fed my pig on yonder hill;
My pig, squeakie, squeakie,
My cat, cheetie, cheetie,
My dog, bouffie, bouffie,
My sheep, maie, maie,
My duck, wheetie, wheetie,
My hen, chuckie, chuckie,
My cock, lily-cock, lily-cock, coo;
Every one loves their cock, why should not I love
my cock too?

2.
I haed a henny, my henny pleased me,
I fed my henny ahin' the tree,
An' aye my henny cried jim-a-jick, jim-a-jick,
An' my cockie cried leely gowkoo;
Leese me on your bonny black mou',
John Gowrie's cock was never like you.

I haed a chucky, my chucky pleased me,
I fed my chucky ahin' the tree,
An' aye my chucky cried pee-ack, pee-ack,
An' my henny cried jim-a-jick, jim-a-jick,
An' my cockie cried leely gowkoo;
Leese me on your bonny black mou',
John Gowrie's cock was never like you.

I haed a deuky, my deuky pleased me,
I fed my deuky ahin' the tree,
An' aye my deuky cried quaak-quaak,
An' my chucky cried pee-ack, pee-ack,
An' my henny cried jim-a-jick, jim-a-jick,
An' my cockie cried leely gowkoo;
Leese me on your bonny black mou',
John Gowrie's cock was never like you.
