Robbie & Grannie
Robbie & Grannie they git to the town
And likewise between them they spend half a crown
For ae glass that Robbie drank Grannie drank two
So aye by this means the [fair] lady got four
Singing Four, Four, Four Robbie Four.
So Robbie & Grannie git up to [Gitane]
Says Robbie to Grannie it's this I'm [?]
The claes that I'm wearing is as [?] as your
And I'll gang to ane other 'cos he wadna pour
Pour, pour, pour Robbie pour.
Robbie [?] at her until he fell back
Lie a tumble rattle on a [cairt] trap
He cursed and he ca'd her an auld drunken sou
But aye the [?] lady cried pooh Robbie pooh
Pooh, Pooh, pooh Robbie pooh.
Mrs Barbara Walker (53) at Marylebone Workhouse April 2nd 1909
