The Merry Muses of Caledonia by Robert Burns
There Cam' a Cadger


Tune"Clout the Cauldron."

An old fragment.

There cam' a cadger out o' Fife,
 I wat na how they ca'd him;
He play'd a trick to our gudewife,
 When fient a body bad him.
 Fal lal. &c.

He took a lang thing stout and strang,
 An' strack it at her gyvel;
An' aye she swore she fand the thing
 Gae borin' by her nyvel.

 Fal lal, &c.
