Comin’ through the mossie-o,
Comin’ through the mossie-o;
I lickit ott my puckle meal,
An’ played away my pyockie-o.

The craw’s ta’en the pussie-o,
The craw’s ta’en the pussie-o:
The muckle cat sat doun an’ grat,
In Johnnie’s little hoosie-o.

It happened on a Wednesday,
A windy windy Wednesday;
It happened on a Wednesday,
Gin I can richtlie mind it o.

Glossary: Muckle: large, great; Puckle: little, a small amount; Pyockie, whistle

Footnote: A popular bairn’s song, enjoyed by all from 3 to 93! This is the original version but next week will feature an expanded one by the great Scottish folksinger and Oliver Brown Award winner Jimmie Macgregor.
