Green Fields of Dundee

  • (Words & music: ?)

    There's a factory on the outskirts of Dundee
    Round it grow the fields of Smedley's peas
    After school they set me free
    Every year when I was wee
    To pea in the green fields of Dundee

    Ah the highlight of school life was for me
    The six weeks every year they let us pea
    But they fairly drove us daft
    Before they let us aff
    Teaching us to pea in the green fields of Dundee

    Now you might think that anyone can pea
    Wonder what the joy of it could be
    We had contests of the best
    Man you had to pass a test
    To pea in the green fields of Dundee

    'Twas at the pea-ing that the girls first caught my e'e
    I noticed they pea-ed different frae me
    Being five foot six or so
    I pea-ed high whilst they pea-ed low
    As we pea-ed in the green fields of Dundee

    Ah my heart soon was lost to Polly the Pea
    The finest little pea-er in Dundee
    We braved all kinds of weather
    That we might be together
    To pea in the green fields of Dundee

    I found happiness in many different ways
    But aye my mind returns to childhood days
    Won't the kids all think me soft
    Would they just stand there and laugh
    If I went back to one last pea in the green fields of Dundee

    (as sung by Watt Nicoll)
