Burns, “The Little Vagabond” read by Katie Carr

Source: UMW. Burns The Little Vagabond read by Katie Carr

Dear mother, dear mother, the church is cold,
But the ale-house is healthy and pleasant and warm;
Besides I can tell where I am used well,
Such usage in Heaven will never do well.

But if at the church they would give us some ale,
And a pleasant fire our souls to regale,
We’d sing and we’d pray all the live-long day,
Nor ever once wish from the church to stray.

Speak Your Mind
