Up Stocks, Doon Stules Up stocks, doon stules, Dinna think 'at we are fules, We're but bairns come to play, Rise up and gie's oor Hogmanay; God bless the maister o' this hoose, The mistress also, And all the little children That roond the table go; Your pockets fu' o' money, Your bottles fu' o' beer, You'll never miss a ha'penny, To begin this guid new year! ________________________________________________________ Rymour Club Misc. I (1906-11), 53; Hogmanay rhyme from Deeside. Hendry/Stephen Scotscape (1978), 3, has 1-2, var. "sticks". See also "Rise up, gudewife". SF APR99
