The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
510. Song—Fragment—Wee Willie Gray
 
 
Tune—“Wee Totum Fogg.”
 
 
WEE Willie Gray, and his leather wallet,
Peel a willow wand to be him boots and jacket;
The rose upon the breir will be him trews an’ doublet,
The rose upon the breir will be him trews an’ doublet,
 
Wee Willie Gray, and his leather wallet,        5
Twice a lily-flower will be him sark and cravat;
Feathers of a flee wad feather up his bonnet,
Feathers of a flee wad feather up his bonnet.
