Lyrics
Well, I just come down from the isle of sky
I'm not very big and I'm awfully shy
The lasses shout as I go by "donald, where's your troosers?"

Let the wind blow high
Let the wind blow low
Through the streets in a kilt I go
All the lasses shout hello
Donald where's yer troosers?

A lassie took me to the ball
And it was slippery in the hall
I was afraid that I would fall
Cause I was'nae wearin' troosers

Let the wind blow high
Let the wind blow low
Through the streets in a kilt I go
All the lasses shout hello
Donald where's yer troosers?

To wear the kilt is my delight
I'm never wrong 'cause I'm always right
The highlanders would get a fright
If they saw me wearin' troosers

Let the wind blow high
Let the wind blow low
Through the streets in a kilt I go
All the lasses shout hello
Donald where's yer troosers?

Well, I was drivin' in my car
Went downtown to kenny's bar
Fifteen scotches, five cigars
And I left without my troosers

Let the wind blow high
Let the wind blow low
Through the streets in a kilt I go
All the lasses shout hello
Donald where's yer troosers?

Big kazoo finish - LOL ;)

What fun!
Caro, you're a one-woman band, and it's delightful when you post a song for us. Did donald ever find his troosers? Love the kazoo, as always.

XOXOXO

It seems like
eons ago that there was a post from you Caroline - and what a lovely post with have here - and with your trademark kazoo playing of course. That pink eggshaker is obviously far more esoteric than my early learning centre one. We don't need Andy Stewart! Great fun as ever. Thank you for posting.

apb said 3675 days ago (September 3rd, 2007)
:o) - wow ...
.. ah canny think wit inspired ye lassie ;o) .. Tomas!! .. knew I wouldn't get any "cute" remarks for speaking English with a Scottish accent .. oh no .. had to be Tomas .. sheesh ;o) hahahah.

"apb flew in for mj uk 2008 from sweden" .. arrived
a bit early then !! *doh* lol.

Lovely post Caroline: I could sense it was brewing inside you to record this old gem... could do with some panning .. and a few more of those "sus" chords ;o)

Sorry to hear River got sacked as percussionist .. so soon in his career too... ah well: avocado oot ... pink egg .. in! .. and that geetar has a name .. it's Janine's guitar!!!

Thanks awefully dahling ...for having us over .. and putting us up/up with us, feeding us, taking us to the theatre party & chippy, getting my Nicotine drugs, making us re-cycle the empties, advising against playing the cat like a trumpet if it got it's bahooky in the way again..etc etc ;o) .. we had a ludicrously silly and fun packed few days..with only one minor argument .. with the vicious toilet latch ;o)

As Tomas says in Sweden, with a Scottish accent: "Yarp!"

Next year .. I'll be in me kilt ..and feeling the wind blow high and low :o).. Rhamsay dress tartan .. not "a green one, or a red one" (which was the reply to my "which clans have you got?" question to a kilt hire shop I phoned once in England).

I do not talk alot! Oh .. arse ... LOL.

troosers optional
It was worth the twenty minutes it took for this little gem to load on my dialup connection! ;)

Ooooh, soo luffly!

James has got me wearing no troosers here! Would you believe I'm wearing a sarong and liking it? LOL

Judging from this song, you all had a woooo-derful time!

Hopefully you'll be posting more gems from the gathering.

Komrade K said 3670 days ago (September 8th, 2007)
Well my ancestors hail from the Isle of Skye...
...and I wore the kilt when once I entered a highland dancing competition. Mind you dancing with one of those wretched sporrans bouncing up and down on yer whatnot is not my idea of fun and of course I had trouble finding a kilt long enough...

But seriously, this is an essential and loving interpretation of this little known traditional Scots bothy ballad - methinks tinged with a little post MJUK07 sadness.

Thank you so much for the comment on my song, and my apology for the delayed response. Though I am all about letting people download my music for free, I would like to copyright it first.

This is amazing song. I love you voice is wonderful and these are great! the kazoo gets two thumbs way up. I would like to hear your sanskrit interpretations!
