I BELONG TO GLASGOW (Will Fyffe 1921) Will Fyffe with orchestra conducted by Albert W Ketelbey recorded October 17th 1929 I've been wi' a few o' my cronies, One or two pals o' my ain; We went in a hotel, We did very well, Aye and then we came out once again. And then we went into another That is the reason I'm fu'; We had six deoch-an-doruses, Then sang a chorus, Just listen, I'll sing it to you! I belong to Glasgow, Dear old Glasgow town, But there's something the matter with Glasgow, For it's going round and round! I'm only a common old workin' lad, As anyone can see, But when I get a couple o' drinks on a Saturday, Glasgow belongs to me! There's nothing in being teetotal And saving a shilling or two. If your money you spend, You've nothing to lend, Isn't that all the better for you! There's nae harm in takin' a drappie, It ends all your troubles and strife! And it gives ya a feeling that, when you land home, Well you don't care a hang for your wife! (banter) I belong to Glasgow, Dear old Glasgow town, But there's something the matter with Glasgow, For it's going round and round? I'm only a common old workin' lad, As anyone can see, But when I get a couple o' drinks on a Saturday, Glasgow belongs to me! note deoch-an-doruses - drinks at the door, farewell drinks fu' - drunk (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2017)
