ANGUS AND THE KILT
Written by Lolly Foy
Performed by Wench Works

Now Angus was a happy man for soon he would be wed.
He'd found a brisk and bonny lass to take unto his bed
But happier still his mother was that he had found a wife
For truth be told she'd often feared to be stuck with him for life.

Well it's a fine thing, a bonny thing the grandest ever seen.
For truth be told she'd often feared to be stuck with him for life.

In honor of the grand affair that wedding day would be,
She set about to weave a kilt the finest ever seen.
The night before the wedding when the kilt was finally done,
She called young Angus over and she tried it on her son.

Well it's a fine thing, a bonny thing the grandest ever seen.
She called young Angus over and she tried it on her son.

She wound that kilt around him, and she wound and wound and wound,
But when she finished winding it was still 8 yard too long.
Oh, never fear me bonny boy, we'll simply cut it off.
And to your blushing bride we will give the extra cloth.

Well it's a fine thing, a bonny thing the grandest ever seen.
And to your blushing bride we will give the extra cloth.

Well Angus was so please you know his heart had swelled with pride.
He thought that he was rush right out and show it to his bride.
'Twas rainin' so he grab a cloak to shield him on the moor
But in his haste to be away his kilt slammed in the door.

Well it's a fine thing, a bonny thing the grandest ever seen.
But in his haste to be away his kilt slammed in the door.

Well Angus was in such a rush to show off for his bride
He never really noticed that he'd left his kilt behind
He knocked upon the door, cried let me in I pray
I've something that you've got to see before our wedding day.

Well it's a fine thing, a bonny thing the grandest ever seen.
I've something that you've got to see before our wedding day.

Well Brigit lets him in you know but says you cannot stay
I've got to get me beauty sleep before our wedding day
I'll only be a moment love, but it's so grand my dear
You've really got to see what I've a hiding under here

Well it's a fine thing, a bonny thing the grandest ever seen.
You've really got to see what I've a hiding under here

Now, when the cloak was thrown aside and Angus stood quite bare
We must admit, she was impressed and tried hard not to stare
Oh, love I ne'er seen finer, though far and far I've roamed.
Why lass he cries that's nothing. I've got eight more yards at home.
