Mary Stoic, ‘Songs from the Old Country’ {NY: Humble Pie, 1855}, p37


'Pull Ye Lassie’s Petticoat Doon!'

There’s snow that’s fallen on the glen

The highland frost’s too much for men

So what you want to lift yea froon

Is pull ye lassie’s petticoat’s doon!

Pull ye lassie’s petticoat doon — she’s droppin’ it doon for less than a croon.

Pull ye lassie’s petticoat doon — she’s whipping it off for all of the toffs

Pull ye lassie’s petticoat doon — she’ll have it away whatever the day

Pull ye lassie’s petticoat doooooon… and give your hands a warmin’!
