Belle's Bonnie Bogie (Les Barker) As I gae'd oot by Huntly toon One evenin' for tae fare I fell in wi' Bogie O'Cairnie On his rare and hairy mare. I am a bloomin' ploomon I ken hoo tae ploo, the noo Ye ken a mon hae got tae ploo What a mon hae got tae ploo Noo the fairmer had a dochter Her name it were Belle She had an awfu' big nose And a powerfu' sense of smell I wish that I could marry Belle. If I could have ma' choose. I'd hold her by the legs And we could hoover roond the hoose. One day she went oot walking And Belle she fell asleep She sucked up a' the daffodils And a herd o' passin' sheep And when the shepherd he came there A-callin' for his dogie He came upon a black and roond Really massive bogie It was the biggest in the worrrld There cannae be a doot And a' the folks from roond aboot Cam' roond to roll it oot There's airms and legs a stickin' oot And soon a face appears Twas the fairmer's Uncle Angus Why, he'd not been seen for years Belle's Bonnie Bogie It outgrew the Stone of Scone I own that Belle had blown An Elgin Mairble of her own They rolled it roond and roond the toon Till they found the pairfect spot Most monuments are granite But in Huntly toon it's not So if ye gang tae Huntly toon Ye'll see it lying there Bogie, bonnie Belle's bogie A-standin' in the square Sung by Alison Younger on the Mrs Ackroyd Band album "Gnus and Roses" VRH oct00
