Subject: RE: Lyr Add: (Hiring Fair) Sleepytoon
First verse - "I gaed up tae Insch tae fee"

Chorus - "An sing airy irrity addy
And sing airy irrity an".

I sang this frequently back in the early "Heritage" days and I'm pretty sure I first got it from the singing of Ray Fisher. Margie Sinclair of "Mirk" also sings it. It's in Ord's "Bothy Songs and Ballads".
