Collection of Irish Song Lyrics

Scotsman's Kilt


Oh a Scotsman clad in kilt left the bar one evening fair
and one could tell by how he walked he'd drunk more than his share
he fumbled 'round until he could no longer keep his feet
and he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

CHORUS
ring ding diddle dliddle add E O
ring ding diddily I Oh
(repeat last line of verse)

Well about that time two young and lovely lassies passed him by
and one looked to the other with a twinkle in her eye
"Do you see yon sleepin' Scotsman so strong and handsome built?
Well I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath their kilt"

They crept up to the sleepin' Scotsman quiet as could be
they lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
and there behold for them to view beneath the Scotsman's skirt
there was nothin' more than God had graced him with upon his birth

Well they marvelled for a moment and one said "we must be gone.
Let's leave a present for our friend before we move along"
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied up in a bow
about the bonny part the Scotsman's kilt had lift and shown

Well the Scotsman woke to Nature's call and stumbled toward the trees
he lifted up his kilt and then he gawks at what he sees
and in the voice of wonderment at what's before his eyes
"Akk lad I don't know where you've been but I see you've won first prize"
