There Was a Piper Had a Coo

     There was a piper had a coo,
       And he'd no hay to gie her.
     He took his pipes and played a tune,
       Consider, auld coo, consider.

     The coo considered verra weel,
       For she gave the piper a penny,
     That he might play the tune again
       Of Corn Rigs are Bonny.

     nocht 4 An bad her weel consider. 6 An gave 7 T' play
     the same tune ouer again 8 The corn rigs.  ODNR 351
