When I Was Single

When ah was single I used to comb ma hair

Noo ah’m mairried I havenae the time tae spare

It’s a life, a life, a weary, weary life

Yer better tae be single than tae be a mairried wife


When ah was single ah used a powder puff

Noo ah’m mairried ah canny afford the stuff


Wan says ‘Mammy, help me intae ma pram’

Anither says ‘Mammy, gie’s a piece an jam’


Wan says ‘Mammy, help me intae ma bed’

Anither says ‘Mammy, scratch ma wudden leg’
