A BRASH 0' FLAILIN'.
By James McIlfatrick.
Now Wee Willie John that lived o'er the way,
Wuz up ivery mornin' at the "screigh" 0' day,
Then tae the barn when he got his tay,
Fur a daily brash 0' flailin'.
Boys wee Willie John fairly birled it roun'
The han' staff spun, as the soople cum down,
The thumpety thump fur miles did soun',
In that daily brash 0' flailin'.
Willie John's wife wuz from ovir the moss,
A rough big lump, that they sayed wuz cross,
There wazn't a doubt she wuz boss,
No wunthir he tuk tae flailin'.
Come the fall 0' the year, at the big Hallow fair ,
Wee Willie John an' his cronies wur there;
He'd finish the day, goin' on the "tare",
Landin' home tae get a good flailin'.
