"Rattling Roaring Willie" as written by and Ciaran Bourke Barney Mackenna....
O rattlin' roarin' Willie, o he held tae the fair
An' for to sell his fiddle an' buy some other ware
But parting wi' his fiddle, the saut tear blint his e'e
And rattlin' roarin' Willie, ye're welcome hame to me

O Willie come sell your fiddle, come sell your fiddle sae fine
O Willie come sell your fiddle, and buy a pint o' wine
If I should sell my fiddle the world would think I was mad
For many a rantin' day my fiddle and I hae had

As I cam' by Crochallan, I cannily keekit ben
Rattlin' roarin' Willie was sitting at yon board en'
Sitting at yon board en' and amang guid company
Rattlin' roarin' Willie, ye're welcome hame to me

O' rattlin' roarin' Willie, o he held tae the fair
An' for to sell his fiddle an' buy some other ware
But parting wi' his fiddle, the saut tear blint his e'e
And rattlin' roarin' Willie, ye're welcome hame to me
