I Wish They’d Do It Now

I was born of Scottish parents one day when I was young
That’s why the Scottish accent is my native tongue
I was a pretty baby, my mother she did vow
The girls all ran to kiss me – I wish they’d do it now

When I was only six months old the girls would handle me
They’d clutch me to their bosoms and bounce me on their knees
They’d rock me in my cradle if I made a row
They’d tickle me and cuddle me – I wish they’d do it now

At sixteen months as fine a lad as ever could be seen
The girls would all follow me when I went to the green
They’d make a chain of buttercups, place it on my brow
And they’d roll me in the clover – I wish they’d do it now

The eastern girls would go with me to swim when it was mild
Down to the river we would go, splash around awhile
They’d throw the water over me, duck me like a cow
Then they’d rub me nice all over – I wish they’d do it now

Well it’s awful lonely for a lad to live a single life
I think l’ll go to the dance tonight and find myself a wife
Oh have got six brindled pigs, likewise one fat sow

they’ll be plenty love and bacon for the girl who loves me now.

For the girl who loves me now for the girl who loves me now

They’ll be plenty love an bacon for the girl who loves me now.
