Lyrics

The wind, and the wind, and the wind blows high
And smoke comes falling frae the sky
Jenny MacPherson says she’ll die
For the want of the Golden City

She is handsome, she is pretty
She’s the girl of the windy city
She has lovers one, two, three
Come and tell me who will be

Johnny Martin says he loves her
All the boys are thinking of her
Jenny MacPherson says she’ll die
If whe doesn’t get the fellow with the roving eye

When she gets a love of her own
She won’t tell her ma when she gets home
Let them all come as they will
Johnny Martin loves her still

I’m not going to the parish trip
No I’m not going again
I’m not going to the parish trip
For it a’ways comes on rain

I’m not going to the parish trip
No I’m not going at all
I’m not going to the parish trip
For it a’ways comes on snaw

Oor wee school’s the best wee school
It’s made with bricks and plaster
The only thing that’s wrong with it
Is a baldy-headed master
He goes to the pub on Saturday
Goes to church on Sunday
To pray to God to give him strength
To murder the weans on Monday

I’ll tell the bobby, I’ll tell the bobby,
I’ll tell the bobby
If you lay a hand on me

Fifteen days in the clink-shop
Fifteen days in the clink-shop
Fifteen days in the clink-shop
If you lay a hand on me

Oh the grand old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
And he marched them down again
And when they were up, they were up
And when they were down, they were down
And when they were only halfway up
They were neither up nor down

You canna shove your granny aff the bus
You canna shove your granny aff the bus
You canna shove your granny,
For she’s your mammy’s mammy
You canna shove your granny aff the bus

You can shove your other granny aff the bus
You can shove your other granny aff the bus
You can shove your other granny
For she’s your daddy’s mammy
You can shove your other granny aff the bus

Singing I will if you will so will I
Singing I will if you will so will I
I will if you will, I will if you will
I will if you will so will I
