Tail Todle Lyrics
Tail Toddle

Album: Mighty Day On Campus
[Variations of the words are often seen,
but this is the CMT version,]

Spoken:
Speaking of dirty Scotch songs...
Here's one called "Tail Toddle" and
involves a wee lass named Tammie.

Chorus:
Tail todle, tail todle;
Tammie gars my tail todle;
But an' ben we diddle-doddle,
Tammie gars my tail todle.

Tail todle, tail todle;
Tammie gars my tail todle;
But an' ben we diddle-doddle,
Tammie gars my tail todle.

----

When I'm deid and oot o' date;
When I'm seik and full o' trouble;
When I'm weel I stap aboot,
An' Tammie gars my tail todle.
[Chorus]

Jessie Mack she gae'd a plack,
Helen Wallace gae'd a boddle;
Quo' the bride, "Its over little
For tae mend a broken doddle."
[Chorus]

Our gudewife held o'er to Fife,
For tae buy a coal-riddle;
Lang 'for she came back again,
Tammie gar't my tail todle.
[Chorus]
