Braes Of Killiecrankie

  • Trad

    Tooral ooral ooral ay, O fal da doodle i-doo-ay
    O fal da doodle i-doo-ay on the braes o' Killicrankie

    For on the thistle I sat doon I nearly jumpit tae the moon
    I nearly jumpit tae the moon for the lass that stole my hankie

    For Jean MacNeil she's fair and fat, and she wears her hair below her hat
    She wears her hair below her hat on the braes o' Killiecrankie

    For her feet is big and her face is fat, and her curly locks hang doon her back
    Her curly locks hang doon her back on the braes o' Killiecrankie

    But Jean she began to curse, her bloomers fell doon, and her stays they burst
    She gie'd her auld fit a twist and she ca'd it through the windae

    As sung by Jeannie Robertson

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1984:] [This is] little more than 'daring' playground doggerel, but its comic text and its lively skittish dance measure made it popular wherever Jeannie sang it. (Hamish Henderson, notes Jeannie Robertson, 'Up the Dee and Doon the Don')
