Weary Life

  • (Trad)

    Chorus:
    It's a life, a life, a weary weary life
    It's better tae be single that tae be a married wife

    When I was single I used to comb my hair
    Now that I'm married I haven't the time to spare

    When I was single I used a powder puff
    Now that I'm married I can't afford the stuff

    One says Mammy help me oot o' the pram
    The other says Mammy give us a piece 'n' jam

    One says Mammy help me into the bed
    The other says Mammy scratch ma wooden leg

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh & Hamish Imlach)
