Eeek! I've been found out!

Yes, it's true... I must admit it... here if nowhere else... I'm ... I'm... yes! I'm a Filk-a-holic!

A very favorite song of mine that I have yet to commit to memory:

The Scotsman
Words and Music by : Mike Cross

A Scotsman in a kilt, he left the bar one evening fair,
And one could tell by the way he walked, he'd drunk more than his share.
He staggered off until he could no longer keep his feet,
Then stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street.

CHORUS:
Ring-ding-diddle-iddle-I-dee-oh,
Ring-dy-diddly-I-oh,
(Repeat last line of previous verse)

Later on two young and lovely ladies happened by.
One says to the other with a twinkle in her eye,
"See yon sleeping Scotsman, so strong and handsome built,
"I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath their kilt."

CHORUS

They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be,
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see.
And there, behold for them to view, beneath his Scottish skirt,
Was nothin' more than God had graced him with upon his birth.

CHORUS

They marveled for a moment, then one said, "We must be gone.
Let's leave a present for our friend before we move along."
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied into a bow.
Around the bonny star the Scotsmans kilt did lift and show.

CHORUS

Well,the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled toward the trees.
Behind a bush he lifts his kilt and gawks at what he sees.
And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes,
"Oh, lad I don't know where ye've been but I see ye've won first prize."

CHORUS

Current Mood: Filky

You do realize this will begin a new support group right: Filkers Anonymous, as opposed to anony-moose!

hehehe... ya well... Like the pic btw... altho, I must say, I'm not so sure it's filk, but it's funny and has a catchy tune.

aye it doe, I've also heard that story as a schoolbus joke :)

LOL!!!!!

thank you for that, it made my day :)

Scotsman

Here's 2 more verses I know. ^_^

His fingers still with Drinkin' numb, his head still spinning round,
He could not loose that knot, so he left it as 'twas found.
And when his wife did spy on that fair stem what flower grows,
It peaked her curiousity as you might well suppose.

(chorus)

When she had asked him where he'd been and what he'd done,
He said there'd been a contest at the bar and he had won.
"How could you go and show that thing in front of all the men?"
"I didna show it all me lassie, just enough to win."
(chorus)
