Tune:  Hey Tutti, Taiti
Robert Burns

Landlady, count the lawin,
The day is near the dawin;
Ye’re a’ blind drunk, boys,
            And I’m but jolly fou.

Hey tutti, taiti,
Hey tutti, taiti,
Hey tutti, taiti –
Wha’s fou now?

Cog, an ye were ay fou,
Cog, an ye were ay fou,
I wad sit and sing to you,
            If ye were ay fou.

Footnote:   A further mini-series of songs by our National Bard to celebrate the 220th anniversary of the Kilmarnock Edition (31 July 1786). The tune is ‘Hey Tutti, Taiti’ which he also used for ‘Bruce’s Address’ (Scots Wha Hae). Of the tune Robert Burns remarked “I have met the tradition universally over Scotland and particularly about Stirling – the neighbourhood of the scene- that the air was Robert the Bruce’s March at the Battle of Bannockburn.”
