Wee Deoch 'n Doris


There's a good old Scottish custom that has stood the test o'time,
It's a custom that's been carried out in every land and clime.
When brother Scots are gathered, it's aye the usual thing,
just before we say good night, we fill our cups and sing...

Just a wee deoch `n doris, just a wee drop, that's all.
Just a wee deoch `n doris afore ye gang awa.
There's a wee wife waitin' in a wee but an `ten.
If you can say, "It's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht",
Then yer a'richt, ye ken.

Now I like a man that is a man; a man that's straight and fair.
The kind of man that will and can, in all things do his share.
Och, I like a man a jolly man, the kind of man, you know,
The chap that slaps your back and says, "Jock, just before ye go..."

Just a wee deoch `n doris, just a wee drop, that's all.
Just a wee deoch `n doris afore ye gang awa.
There's a wee wife waitin' in a wee but an `ten.
If you can say, "It's a fine bright, moonlight night,"
Then you're all right, you know
