There's a good old Scottish custom that has stood the test of time.
It's a custom that's been carried out in ev'ry land and clime.
Where brother Scots foregather
It's aye the usual thing.
For just before they say "Good Not," they fill their cups and sing;


Just a wee Deoch-an'-Doris
A wee drap, that's a ',
A wee Deoch-an'-Doris,
Before we gang awa '
There's a wee wifie waiting.
In a wee but-an-ben;
If ye can say, "It's a braw, break, don't moonlight
Ye're a 'richt, ye ken!

I like a man that is a man, a man that's straight and fair.
A sort of man, that will and can in all things do his share.
I like a man, a jolly man,
The sort o 'man, “ye know”.
The chap that slaps yer back and says, "Mon Jock," before we go.

I'll invite ye a 'some other not, to come and bring yer wives.
And I'll guarantee ye'll have the grandest not in all yer lives.
I'll have the bagpipes skirling
We'll make the rafters ring.
And when yer tired and sleepy, why I'll wake yer up an 'sing:
