Broadside ballad entitled 'A Wee Drappie Mair'
A WEE DRAPPIE
Copies of this Popular Song can be had the Poet's Box,
One night as I was dandering alang the South Street,
Come awa' my lad an' tak' a wee drappie mair,
I drank her health the second time she did the same
A strapping lookin' hassie she seemed for to be;
She forced the drink upon me till I saw the house run
And in another twa or three minutes I was ower sleepin'
Songs sent to any part of the country on receipt of
an extrea stamp to ensure a free return per post,
Immediate despatch may be relied upon.
Probable period of publication:
1880-1900 shelfmark: L.C.Fol.70(40a)
