Piper

by J.K. Annand

 

The hielant piper in his braws
    Heedrom hodrom hi
Pluffs his rosie cheeks and blaws
    Heedrom hodrom hielantman. 

He gie's his oxtered bag a squeeze
    Heedrom hodrom hi
And oot the bonnie music flees
    Heedrom hodrom hielantman. 

Fingers on the chanter prancin
    Heedrom hodrom hi
Gar a bodie's feet gae dancin
    Heedrom hodrom hielantman. 

Some can pipe and some can sing
    Heedrom hodrom hi
But I can dance the Hielant Fling
    Heedrom hodrom hielantman.
