Loch Lomondish

(You know the tune!)

Ye'll tak the high road
And I'll tak the low road,
And we'll be divorced by the morning.
I'm off to my true love;
I can't wait to be free.
Just remember, I gave you due warning!

Your cars on the bridge now
And speeding away now
A bright day of freedom is dawning.
For I've found a new love
Who's going to cherish me.
Just remember, I gave you due warning!


'I've had a terrible time!' said Ben,
(He was looking rather queasy!)
'Now I know why adults say
'Life wasn't meant to be easy!'
He looked pathetic, down-in-the-mouth,
And really quite dejected.
When I asked him' What's the matter, old chap?'
His reply was not expected.
'First it was Tonsillitis,
Then Asthma was the next,
By the time I got  Kyphosis
I was really really vexed!
Then what should arrive but Psoriasis!
Then Glaucoma reared its head!
Hypothermia really
Made me wish that I were dead!'
'My poor old chap!' I said then.
'Your life has been so tough
It's easy to see that you're feeling
That you have had enough!
What is your doctor suggesting?
Surely you need bed-rest!'
Said Ben 'And how will a doctor help me
Get through a Spelling Test?'
