ACT III

No. 22: SONG - McCrankie & Chorus


McCRANKIE.
  Hech, mon! hech, mon! it gars me greet
    Tae see thy capers mony,
  When nature made the earth sae sweet,
    An' life micht be sae bonny.
  Why nae accept what fortune sen's
An' learn that earth an' heaven are frien's?
    Eneugh o' hanky-panky —
      Gie ower thy freaks
An' don the breeks,
    An' be a mon, McCrankie!
CHORUS.
      Thou'st got 'em on!
McCRANKIE. (proudly)
      I've got 'em on!
CHORUS.
    Thou'st got 'em on, McCrankie!
      Thou'st got 'em on,
McCRANKIE.
      I've got 'em on!
CHORUS.
    Thou'st got 'em on, McCrankie!

McCRANKIE.
  At first I thoucht the sudden swap
    Was jist a wee bit risky;
  But noo they're fastened o' the tap
    I feel quite young an' frisky.
  Tae show ye jist the sort o' thing,
I'm gaun tae dance a Heeland fling,
    An' if ye'll help, I'll thank'ee
      A wee bit skirl —
A wee bit whirl —
    A fling wi' auld McCrankie!
CHORUS.
      A wee bit skirl —
McCRANKIE.
      A wee bit skirl —
CHORUS.
    A fling wi' auld McCrankie!
      A wee bit whirl —
McCRANKIE.
      A wee bit whirl —
CHORUS.
    A fling wi' auld McCrankie!

SCOTTISH DANCE.
