Subject: RE: Common Scots songs 60 years ago
I remember, she (Christina) was singing 'roamin through the gloamin'. My ma said liked Donald where's your trousers and christina retorted it was silly. She 'twinkled' and told me that if was to sing Scottish songs, I was not to sing them in English - it was 'bornie' not 'bonnie', so we ran through a whole lot of other words. She knew the Skye boat song quite well too. She had a funny rhyme as well - must record her next time.
