This fun song is featured on Blair Douglas album "Stay Strong" - Bithibh Laidir/Rester Fort)

This are the lyrics; any questions just ask


CHORUS: 'S barail leam, gu bheil e fèineil (It's my opinion, he is useless)
'S barail leam, gu bheil e faoin; (It's my opinion, he is vain)
'S barail leam, g'eil e 'g innse bhreugan (It's my opinion, he is telling lies)
Abair e!, s barail leam. (I've said it! That's my opinion!)

1. Thainig e shuiridhe feasgar Di-Ciadain (He came courting on Wednesday afternoon)
Chuir e a' cheist, a'guidhe air a ghlùn; (He asked the question, begging on his knees)
Ach ghlae mi a'ghloichd, air beulaibh a'sgàthain (But I caught the fool in front of the mirror)
A'coimhead air fhèin mar righ gun chrùn (Admiring himself like a king without a crown)

2. Thubhairt e rium gun robh e 'sa Chuilthionn (He told me that he'd been in the Cuillins)
A'streap Sgurr Alasdair,'s a' sealg an fheibh; (Climbing Sgurr Alasdair and stalking deer)
Mharbh e damh cho mòr ri uilebheist (He killed a hind as big as a monster)
Bi sithionn againne 'son bliadhna gu leth (We have venison for a year and a half!)

3. 'S fhuair e bradain an abhainn Sgèubost (He caught salmon from the River Skeabost)
'S cha robh aige slat no lìon; (He had neither a rod nor a net)
Thoisich e feadaireachd, "Am Piobaire Misgeach" (He started to whistle the "Drunken Piper")
'S leum na h-amadain uile gu tìr (And the idiots all leapt on land!)

4. Gun sgillinn na phòeaid 's tuill na bhrògan (Penniless, with holes in his shoes)
Daonman a' bòilich, 's ceann gun chiall (And his head without sense)
Dè nì an saoghal le duine cho gòrach (What can the world do with a man so stupid?)
Dè nì an saoghal le duine as a rian (What can the world do with a man so crazy?)
