The Good-Looking Widow
- (L. Cheyne)
I ken I'm good-lookin' an' handsome an' braw
And though I'm a widow that's nothin' at a'
And if some bonnie laddie will tak' me awa
Then I'll be his bride in the mornin'
I'm a good-lookin' widow, nae wonder ye stare
I've had three men already, as sure as you're there
And it's nae for anither my heart'll be sair
For I'll get anither ae mornin'
The first man I had was a baker tae trade
He was a loafer, and very low-bred
Fond o' me but mair fond o' his bed
So I got anither ae mornin'
The second man I had was a tailor tae trade
He was a dab-hand wi' needle an' thread
He'd a wart on his neck whaur his collar gaed on
That he used for a stud in the mornin'
The third man I had was a fella ca'd Sam
He was a good man but he lik d a dram
Sae oor married life didnae last awf'y lang
And I got anither ae mornin'
(as sung by Cilla Fisher & Artie Trezise)
