A lively dandling song sung to Thelma Jamieson’s baby who makes appreciative sounds. It may have been a tune played on the fiddle in Whalsay as a reel. Roud Index no. 25915.
Oh the laddie leuchd and the lassie leuchd [laughed]
And the auld wife loppit her cairds and leuchd
And the auld man he fell ower the pail
And broke his rumple bane an he leuchd [rump bone]
