At It Again Though Geordie's a man I hav'ny seen lately I met with his brother in Tain Says I, "Do you think that he's still off the drink?" "Oh no, he's at it again!" cho: Aye we telt him and aye we warned him And aye he promised but then At the turn o yer back he'd be right off the track And noo he's at it again! I asked him, "Is Geordie still makin' good whiskey?" He's prone to distill now and then "He'd been testin' a sup and near blew he's sel' up But noo he's at it again!" Geordie's the man for courtin' the ladies He's tall and handsome but vain He wed five or six but they tired of his tricks And noo he's at it again! I remember when Geordie discovered the horses Then swore no to back them again All his horses got bate, he had a devil of hate But noo he's at it again! The baliff caught Geordie doon poachin' the salmon And off to the court he was taen But the truth for to tell, he'd a rest in his cell And noo he's at it again! XX Apr98
