The Poacher's Call
Hi canny lad will ye gan wi me
Doon by the Coquet stream we'll be
Poachin' the salmon wi' gaff and wi' line
Beat the baileys aal o' the time.
Aa divn't gan poachin' just for the fish,
Aa think they are an over-rated dish.
Aa gan fishin' for the sport of the catch
See if Aa gain the baileys and the match.
If ye gan poachin' ye beware
Ye'll niver get catched if ye tak' a deal o' care.
Niver tell a soul where ye will gan
Or they'll come and get ye in a little van.
