It sounds like an old diddlin tune I will try and find the tune

Oh the broon coo's broken oot and aeten aw the corn
the broon coo's broken oot and aeten aw the corn
the broon coo's broken oot and aeten aw the corn
If ye dinny marry Mary ye'll no get her the morn.

From The Fiddle Tradition of the Shetland Isles by Peter Cooke (Cambridge University Press, 1982)

Appendix 4: Texts associated with dancing tunes in oral tradition in Shetland during the 1970s

DA BROON COO (MRS MACLEOD OF RAASAY)

Da broon coo's broken oot and gaen among da coarn
If someone doesn't take her oot de'll be nane left de moarn,
So go du in me peerie boy and grab her be da tedder,
For tou's a peerie supple ting, no lake de auld don faider.

--Haand Me Doon da Fiddle, no. 4.

What's the one to the tune of "Orange and Blue" about a bull in a field of heifers?

"...Those he disnae fuck today he's gwine tae fuck tomorrow."

(From an ex-girlfriend of mine who learned it in Fife in the Fifties; that's all I can remember).
