Thread Name: Lyr Req: Muckin' o' Geordie's Byre
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Muckin O'Geordies Byre
Here is the chorus as sung by Andy Stewart and the posh English version referred to by Malcolm. The other verses I could post when I have time. He sings so quickly it's a struggle to catch all the words.

Siccan a suther was a'body in
Five mile awa ye could hear the din
Even the verra coo had tae grin
At the muckin o Geordie's byre.

Oh such a stramash was there to see,
Five miles away you could hear the melee
Even the domesticated animals were consumed with glee,
At he cleansing of George's cowshed.
