Susie Brown


Aye, you’re a fine young lass.
You’re a bonny wee thing.
But you’re not too good
for the likes of me.

Well, I’m not too rich
and I’m none too poor.
But you’ll not go short
if you cross my door.

I likes hard work
and I’ll do my share.
Got a right steady job.
I’ll treat you real fair.

So, little Susie Brown
if you’re mind to settle down
you need not look far
from this old man.

‘Cause you’re a fine young lass.
You’re a bonny wee thing.
You’re not too fast
and you’re right for me.

1981, December
