Robert Burns - Cock Up Your Beaver

When first my brave Johnnie lad
Came to this town,
He had a blue bonnet
That wanted the crown;
But now he has gotten
A hat and a feather,---
Hey, brave Johnnie lad,
Cock up your beaver.

Cock up your beaver,
And cock it fu' sprush,
We'll over the border
And gie them a brush;
There's somebody there
We'll teach better behaviour---
Hey, brave Johnnie lad,
Cock up your beaver!

This is my first attempt at HTML line breaks and I hope it works.! If it does I hope someone will post the tune.
