Burns Original

Standard English Translation



The Reel O' Stumpie
1.
Wap and rowe, wap and rowe,
Wap and rowe the feetie o't,
I thought I was a maiden fair,
Till I heard the greetie o't!
2.
My daddie was a fiddler fine,
My minnie she made mantie, O,
And I myself a thumpin quine,
And danc'd the Reel o' Stumpie, O.



The Reel Of Stumpie

Wrap and roll, wrap and roll,
Wrap and roll the little feet of it,
I thought I was a maiden fair,
Till I heard the little crying of it!

My daddy was a fiddler fine,
My mother she made ladies cloak, O,
And I myself a thumping young girl,
And danced the Reel of Stumpie, O.
