There Was a Wee Wifie There was a wee wifie row't up in a blanket, Nineteen times as hie as the moon; And what she did there I canna declare, For in her oxter she bure the sun. "Wee wifie, wee wifie, wee wifie," quo' I, "O what are ye doin' up there sae hie?" "I'm blawin' the cauld cluds out o' the sky." "Weel dune, weel dune, wee wifie!" quo' I. ________________________________________________________ Chambers PRS (1847), 193; (1870), 34 (indicated tune, The Rock and the Wee Pickle Tow, q.v.); Ford CR 28, Montgomerie SNR 100; MacLennan SNR (1909), 21 [4 carried].
