The Souters of Selkirk

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,
  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;
And up wi the Men o the Forest,
  And down wi the Merse to the deil.
