The Merry Muses of Caledonia by Robert Burns
She Grippet at the Girtest o't

SHE GRIPPET AT THE GIRTEST O'T.

Tune—"East Neuk o' Fife."

An old song.

Our bride flat and our bride flang,
But lang before the laverock sang,
She paid him twice for every bang,
 And grippet at the girtest o't.

Our bride turn'd her to the wa',
But lang before the cock did craw,
She took him by the cock and a'.
 And grippet at the girtest o't.
