Bruce, the Best Manís, Address to the Groom at His Wedding.

This is one of the poems that will be in my book No' Rabbie which will be published in June 2008.
 


 

Bruce, the Best Man’s, Address to the Groom at His Wedding.
 

 
 

Tune: Hey tutti taiti
 

 
 

Scot, wha hae wi' shavin’ bled,
 

Scot, wham is so easy led,
 

Welcome to yer wedding bed -
 

Oh such mysterie!
 

 
 

Now's the day, and now's the hour:
 

See the front o' battle lour,
 

See approach yer new bride’s mither -
 

Chains and slaverie!
 

 
 

Wha could be so bloody brave?
 

Married till ye meet the grave?
 

All yer life tae be a slave? -
 

Too late tae turn, and flee!
 

 
 

By yer wife’s woes and pains,
 

Ye’ll hae six screamin’, scroungin’ weans,
 

They’ll ensure yer bank book drains,
 

And ye shall ne’er be free!
 

 
 

Lay such horrid thoughts aside!
 

Long enough have ye cried!
 

Let us stand and toast the bride!
 

The drinks are all on me!

I will go through it Oct 3 2009 with grandson. He has gone with the girl long enough to know what he is getting into. She is an only child so knows she can get what she wants. Love is grand though and glad some still go through with the weddings.

Mines a g&t thanks. Nicely parodied. I bet it sounds well when read aloud.
