Traditional Scottish Songs
- Donald, Where's Yer Troosers?
Donald, Where's Yer Troosers?
Just got in from the Isle of Skye
I'm not very big and I'm awfully shy The ladies shout as I go by Donald where's your troosers?
Let the winds blow high, Let the winds blow low, Down the street in my kilt I go And all the ladies say hello Donald where's your troosers?
A lady took me to a ball
And it was slippery in the hall I was afraid that I would fall 'Cause I didn't have on my troosers
They'd like to wed me everyone
Just let them catch me if they can You canna put the brakes on a highland man Who doesn't like wearing troosers.
To wear the kilt is my delight,
It isn't wrong, I know it's right. The highlanders would get afright If they saw me in my troosers.
Well I caught a cold and me nose was raw
I had no handkerchief at all So I hiked up my kilt and I gave it a blow, Now you can't do that with troosers.
Meaning of unusual words:
troosers=trousers (or pants in the US)
