OUR GUDEWIFE'S SAE MODEST.

Tune—"John Anderson, my jo."

This is an old fragment.

Our gudewife's sae modest.
 When she is set at meat,
A laverock's leg, or a tittling's wing,
 Is mair than she can eat;
But, when she's in her bed at e'en,
 Between me and the wa';
She is a glutton deevil.
 She swallows c—ds and a'.
