( Robert Burns)

Up wi, the carls o' Dysart,
And the lads o' Buckhaven,
And the kimmers o' Largo,
And the lasses o' Leven.

Cho: Hey, ca' thro', ca' thro',
For we hae mickle ado ;
Hey, ca' thro', ca' thro',
For we hae mickle ado.

We hae tales to tell,
And we hae sangs to sing ;
We hae pennies to spend,
And we hae pints to bring.

We'll live a' our days,
And them that comes behin',
Let them do the like ;
And spend the gear they win.

Footnote : This Burns' song might have been inspired by the tune 'Carls o Dysart
.' The song was first seen in print in Johnson's volume, and tradition has suppl
ied another excellent verse as follows -

Ne'er break your heart for love ;
Just turn the boat about ;
There's as gude fish i' the sea
As ever yet cam out.
