Treacle Scones Treacle scones they were made, Thick wi' butter they were spread, And on the table they were laid, An' ready for the waddin', O Durrum a doo a di a day, Durrum a doo a daddy, O, Durrum a doo a di a day, Hurrah for the tinker's waddin', O. ________________________________________________________ From Helen Rodger Shoolbraid, Leslie, Fife, c. 1934. This is a folk-verse of a fairly well-known 19th-century comic song, "The Tinklers' Waddin'", written by William Watt (1792-1859), in (e.g.) Ford Vagabond Songs I (1899), 1 (with music). Watt wrote it to the tune Monymusk, but it has long been sung to a set of Last Farewell to Stirling, also used for the Glasgow convivial song "Rothesay-oh". MS MS
