Broadside ballad entitled 'Professor Nimmo's Lament'
PROFESSOR NIMMO'S LAMENT.
AIR?" Black Joke."
O, fare ye well Stirling town,
O, when I was in Stirling town,
But now I have gone and left them,
And while we were together,
The time it came we had to part,
I'll dress them up in pure.
Their babies they will be skilful,
Alas the joys, too, are all gone,
