Bawdy English drinking songs

Recommended Posts

Well as it's Burns Day today, I couldn't help throwing one of his into the melting pot.

Is that a bawdy enough title for you? ;)


Cock up your Beaver!


The Tune is frae the Borders:


Incidentally, did you see that they recently found an unpublished Robert Burns letter in Floors Castle!


"The 222-year-old letter, which has been hailed as a "remarkable literary discovery" by Burns experts, was unearthed in Floors Castle in Kelso."

"Dated 13 May 1789, it is addressed to James Gregory, the then head of Edinburgh's medical school."
