​Bring on the Whisky (and the Haggis)

Posted by Words: Ron Budd Melody: Traditional on

Wi’ the turn o’ the year, noo January’s here

An’ I’m lookin’ forward tae ma haggis;

I havenae long tae wait

‘Til the meal is on ma plate,

An’ I’m sippin’ single malt wi’ ma haggis!

O the 25th’s the day, an’ it’s comin’ as it may

When man tae man will brithers be for a’ this

An’ wi’ kail an’ neaps tae spare

We’ll let everybody share

When we bring on the whisky an’ the haggis!

Tae the memory o’ Burns we will gi’e the toasts in turns

After we’ve addressed the sonsie haggis;

But first we’ll hae the saumun

An’ cockaleek’ an’ a’ man,

Then it’s time for the whisky an’ the haggis.

O the 25th’s the day, an’ it’s comin’ as it may

When man tae man will brithers be for a’ this

An’ wi’ kail an’ neaps tae spare

We’ll let everybody share

When we bring on the whisky an’ the haggis!

The nicht draws tae a close

An’ hame the comp’ny goes

Tae dream o’ fun an’ friends an’ jokes an’ haggis;

An’ for memories like this

Full o’ joy an’ happiness,

God bless ma glass o’ whisky and ma haggis!

(twice)

O the 25th’s the day, an’ it’s comin’ as it may

When man tae man will brithers be for a’ this

An’ wi’ kail an’ neaps tae spare

We’ll let everybody share

When we bring on the whisky an’ the haggis!
