Dennistoun Online: Scottish+Nursery+Songs
This is the last night o’ this year, lads,
Let come in the next whate’er may;
He that’s eydent and honest can welcome
The morning o’ ilk New-year’s-day.
’Tis only the knave needs be gloomy,
There’s muckle in this world to grieve us—
The mile-stanes o’ life, as we journey,
Then, Johnnie,* come fill us a jorum,
*Mr. John Watson and Mr. Gilbert Watson, Parkhead.
