Selkirk
The Souters of Selkirk
Anonymous
 
UP wi’ the Souters o’ Selkirk,
  And down wi’ the Earl of Home;
And up wi’ a’ the braw lads,
  That sew the single-soled shoon.
 
Fye upon yellow and yellow,        5
  And fye upon yellow and green,
But up wi’ the true blue and scarlet,
  And up wi’ the single-soled sheen.
 
Up wi’ the Souters o’ Selkirk,
  For they are baith trusty and leal;        10
And up wi’ the Men o’ the Forest,
  And down wi’ the Merse to the deil.
