Tatties and Herrin'

  • (Trad)

    Your hardworking Scotsman's gone crazy I fear
    Each day ye maun hae your bit beef and your beer
    But ye dinna ken though you're maybe no' carin'
    Your natural food is tatties and herrin'
    Tatties and herrin', tatties and herrin'
    Your natural food is tatties and herrin'

    Wi' a pound in the week ye maun aye be content
    Ten bob tae lay by for the claes and the rent
    Half a croon o' yer ain will ye aye can be sparin'
    And seven and sixpence for tatties and herrin'
    Tatties and herrin', tatties and herrin'
    And seven and sixpence for tatties and herrin'

    When the Queen wanted someone tae fecht wi' her foes
    It wisna awa tae the lowlands she goes
    But awa tae the hills o' the brave and the darin'
    The lads that were brought up on tatties and herrin'
    Tatties and herrin', tatties and herrin'
    The lads that were brought up on tatties and herrin'

    (as sung by Cilla Fisher)
