The shoemaker

Language: English

Shoemaker, shoemaker, are ye within?
A fal a fall addie fallee!
Hae ye got shoes to fit me so trim
For a kiss in the morning early?
O fair may, come in and see,
A fal a fall addie fallee!
I've got but ae pair and I'll gie them to thee
For a kiss in the morning early.
He's ta'en her in behind the bench,
A fal a fall addie fallee!
And there he has fitted his own pretty wench.
With a kiss in the morning early.
