Tae The Beggin.

Of all the trades that I do ken the beggin’ is the best

for when a beggar’s weary he can aye sit doon and rest

Chorus

Tae the beggin I will go will go tae the beggin I will go.

Tae the beggin I will go will go tae the beggin I will go.

.

I got a pocket for me oatmeal and another for me rye

I got a bottle by me side to drink when I am dry

.

I got patches on me pockets and a black patch on me knee

When you come to take me hame I’ll drink as weel as thee

.

I got a pocket for me bried me boys and another for me malt

I got a pair o’ crutches . you should see how I can halt

.

I sleep beneath an open tree and there I pay no rent

Providence provides for me and I am well content

.

Of all the trades that I do ken the beggin is the best

for when a beggars weary he can aye sit doon and rest.
