The Whore Of Dunblane: Paddy Roberts

View_of_loch_lomond

All the little angels are sent up, are sent up,
All the little angels are sent up on high.
Which end up? Ass end up.
Which end up? Ass end up.
All the little angels are sent up on high.

Oh, a lassie was roamin’ by the banks of Loch Lomond,
She tripped on a pebble and made herself lame.
But a Preacher was passin’ and he took compassion,
He lifted her up and he carried her hame.

Chorus

All the little angels are sent up, are sent up,
All the little angels are sent up on high.
Which end up? Ass end up.
Which end up? Ass end up.
All the little angels are sent up on high.

Now I’m happily statin’ that the poor little maiden
Will never, not ever, be troubled again
For he took her and fed her and into bed led her,
And now that wee lassie’s the Whore of Dunblane.

All the little angels are sent up, are sent up,
All the little angels are sent up on high.
Which end up? Ass end up.
Which end up? Ass end up.
All the little angels are sent up on high.

On this occasion, Paddy has somewhat toned down the original ribald version, which you can read about here.

And the tune is pinched from ‘Ach, du lieber Augustin’:

And so it goes, as Kurt Vonnegut would say. But that, mes enfants, is another story for another day… 🙂
