The Merry Muses of Caledonia/There Cam' a Cadger
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.
