Broadside ballad entitled 'The Provost's Nap'
The Provost's Nap.
Tune?" Up in the mornin' early."
" Up in the mornin's no for me?
Bright shines the sun frae east to west,
The Castle guns roar unco loud,
The chimney-taps are clad wi' crowds?
It's braw to tend on Majesty,
" What means that thund' rin' at the door ?
Up flew the Provost's bed-room door,
The Provost dous't his coul, and cried?
The Provost sabb'd, and sigh'd, and moan'd?
