BARONESS CAROLINA OLIPHANT NAIRNE
Scottish poet
(1766 - 1845)

Wha'll buy my caller herrin'?
  The're no brought here without brave darin'
    Buy my caller herrin', Ye little ken their worth.
      Wha'll buy my caller herrin'?
        O you may ca' them vulgar farin',
          Wives and mithers maist despairin'
            Ca' them lives o' men.
      - credited to Caller Herrin',
        old Scotch song, claimed fro Neil Gow, who probably only wrote the music
        [Fish]

Gude nicht, and joy be wi' you a'.
      - Gude Nicht, etc. [Farewell]

A penniless lass wi' a lang pedigree.
      - The Laird o' Cockpen [Women]

There's nae sorrow there, John,
  There's neither cauld nor care, John,
    The day is aye fair,
      In the land o' the leal.
      - The Land o' the Leal [Heaven]

O, we're a' noddin', nid, nid, noddin';
  O we're a noddin' at our house at hame.
      - We're a' Noddin' [Sleep]
