A song for Johnny by Miss-M on 9 September 2008 3:18am
 
Wha Saw the 42nd

1.
Saw ye the Forty-Second?
Saw ye them gaun awa’?
Saw ye the Forty-Second
Marching to the Broomielaw?

Some o’ them had boots an’ stockin’s,
Some o’ them had nane ava;
Some o’ them had tartan plaidies,
Marching to the Broomielaw.

2.
Fa saw the Forty-Second,
Fa saw them gang awa?
Fa saw the Forty-Second
Gaein’ to the Waupinschaw?
Some o’ them gat chappit tatties,
Some o’ them gat nane ava.
Some o’ them gat barley bannocks,
Gaein’ to the Waupinschaw.

Fa saw the Forty-Second,
Fa saw them gang awa?
Fa saw the Forty-Second
Marchin’ doun the Broomie-Law?
Some of them had tartan troosers,
Some of them had nane ava,
Some of them had green umbrellas,
Marchin’ doun the Broomie-Law.

3.
Wha saw the ‘Forty-second’
Wha saw them gaun awa’
Wha saw the ‘Forty-second’
Marchin’ doon the Broomielaw.
Some o’ them had buits and stockin’s,
Some o’ them had nane at a’,
Some o’ them had tartan trousers,
Marchin’ doon the Broomielaw.

Missy are you obsessed with that song or with me ?
She quoted it to me on MSN yesterday.
Quite apt really, as the 42nd is the 42nd Highland Regiment better known as The Black Watch, the regiment my father served with in WW2.

Missy would never talk to you on MSN and neither would I!

I am obsessed with The Great Escape.
