"Hey How Johnie Lad" as written by and Serge Hovey Robert Burns....
When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town,
He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown,
But now he has gotten a hat and a feather,
Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush,
We'll over the border, and gie them a brush,
There's somebody there we'll teach better behaviour,
Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!
