The Modiewark cho: An' O the wanton modiewark The weary, wanton modiewark I maun consult some learned clerk About this wanton modiewark The modiewark has done me ill And below my apron has biggit a hill; I maun consult some learned clerk About this wanton modiewark. O first it gat between my taes Out o'er my garter neist it gaes At length it crep beneath my sark The weary, wanton modiewark. This modiewark, to' it be blin' If aince its nose you lat it in Then to the hilts, within a crack It's out o' sight, the modiewark. When Marjorie was made a bride, And Willie lay down by her side, Syne nocht was heard, when a' was dark But kickin' at the modiewark. Note: Modiewark = mole. Colected by Burns. RG
