Fisherman's Wife

  • Trad

    Wha wad be a fisherman's wife
    Tae gang tae the mussels wi' a scrubber and a knife
    A deid oot fire
    And a revelled bed
    Awa tae the Scall'ps in the morning

    See the boat come beatin' in
    Wi' a three reef an' a four sail in
    Nae a stitch
    Upon his back
    Awa tae the Scall'ps in the morning

    (as sung by Cilla Fisher)
