Buy Broom Buzzems


If you want a buzzem
For to sweep your hoose
Come to me maw hinnies
You can hae your choose

Buy broom buzzems
Buy them when they’re new
Fine heather bred ’uns
Better never grew

Buzzems for a penny
Rangers for a plack
If you winnot buy
Aw’ll tie them on my back

Buy broom buzzems
Buy them when they’re new
Fine heather bred ’uns
Better never grew

If aw had a horse
Aw wad hev a cairt
If aw had a wife
She wad tyek me pairt

Buy broom buzzems
Buy them when they’re new
Fine heather bred ’uns
Better never grew

Had aw but a wife
Aw care not what she be
If she’s but a woman
That’s enuf for me

Buy broom buzzems
Buy them when they’re new
Fine heather bred ’uns
Better never grew

If she liked a droppie
Her and I’d agree
If she didn’t it
There’s the mair for me

Buy broom buzzems
Buy them when they’re new
Fine heather bred ’uns
Better never grew


Composed by William (Blind Willie) Purvis (1752-1832).
In Northumbrian Minstrelsy (1882/1998).
