The Scottsman's Kilt - Lyrics

Oh a Scotsman dressed all in his kilt left the bar one evening fair
You could tell by the way he walked that he'd had more than his share
He staggered off until he could no longer keep his feet
Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

Well about this time two young n' lovely girls came passing by
Said one unto the other with a twinkle in her eye
"See yon sleeping Scotsman so strong and handsome built,
I wonder if it's true that he wears nothing ‘neath his kilt."

Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
I wonder if it's true that he wears nothing ‘neath his kilt

They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be
And lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
Lo and behold for them to view beneath his Scottish skirt
Was nothing more than God had blessed him with upon his birth

Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
Was nothing more than God had blessed him with upon his birth

They marvelled for a moment then they said, "We must be gone.
Let's leave for him a souvenir before we travel on."
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied up in a bow
Around the bonnie star the Scotsman's kilt did lift and show.

Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
Around the bonnie star the Scotsman's kilt did lift and show.

Well the Scotsman rose to nature's call and headed for the trees
He lifted up his kilt and then he gawks at what he sees
And in his drunken voice he says to what's before his eyes
"Oh, lad I don't know where you've been but I see you won first prize."

Ring-ding-did-a-little-la-di-oh, Ring-di-diddly-eye-oh,
"Ah, lad I don't know you've been but I see you won first prize."
