Little Manikin 1. I got a little manikin, I set him on my thoomiken; I saddled him, I bridled him, and sent him to the tooniken; I coffed a pair o' garters to tie his little hosiken; I coffed a pocket-napkin to dight his little nosiken; I sent him to the garden to fetch a pund o' sage, And fand him in the kitchen neuk kissing little Madge! 2. I had a little lairdie That sat upo' my thoom, I saddled 'im an' bridled 'im, An' had 'im to the toon. I sent him to the garden To pu' a buss o' sage, An' I got 'im in the kitchen, Kissin' little Mage. _______________________________________________________ (1) Chambers PRS (1842; 1847), 182; (1870), 21; Ford CR 21; NAE (1932), 23; Montgomerie SNR (1946), 59 (59).
