baskitful
o'berries a craw
cooms for 'em

basketful
of berries a crow
comes for them




maks sense
young squirrels 
natterin'

makes sense
young squirrels
nattering




Sunday mornin'
mi bran-new cooat 
owd fingers 

Sunday morning
my brand new coat
old fingers




breet day
fisher-folks
nuts 'n beer

bright day
fishermen
nuts and beer




bonnie day
amang wild flaars
t' ways o' savin' brass

beautiful day
among wildflowers
the ways of saving money




crowpin' 
no chance o' 
a still neet

frogs croaking
no chance of
a quiet night




shoo's up knittin'
Kessenmas
by t' fire

she's up knitting
Christmas
by the fire




folks coom far
wi' dogs 'n guns
mi stripp'd kine

people come from afar
with dogs and guns
my well-milked cow
