THE HARRIN'S HEID [Herring's Head]
(Traditional)

Oh, what'll we dee wi the harrin's heid?
Oh, what'll we dee wi the harrin's heid?
We'll mak it inte loaves of breed,
Harrin's heid, loaves of breed, and all manner of things.
Of all the fish that's in the sea,
The harrin is the one for me.
How a ye the day? How a ye the day?
How a ye the day, me hinny-o?

Oh, what'll we dee wi the harrin's guts?
Oh, what'll we dee wi the harrin's guts?
We'll mak them inte a pair of beuits,
Harrin's guts, a pair of beuits,
Harrin's heid, loaves of breed, and all manner of things.
Of all the fish that's in the sea,
The harrin is the one for me.
How a ye the day? How a ye the day?
How a ye the day, me hinny-o?

[Similarly:]
Harrin's fins, needles and pins.
Harrin's tail, a boat that sails.
Harrin's eyes, puddins and pies.
Harrin's scales, a barrel of ale.
Harrin's belly, a lass called Nellie.
