Donald Where's Your Troosers?

Album: The Best Of Andy Stewart (1960)
Charted: 4
  • Just got in from the Isle of Skye
    I'm not very big and I'm awfully shy
    The ladies shout as I go by
    Donald where's your troosers?

    Let the winds blow high,
    Let the winds blow low,
    Down the street in my kilt I go
    And all the ladies say hello
    Donald where's your troosers?
    A lady took me to a ball

    And it was slippery in the hall
    I was afraid that I would fall
    'Cause I didn't have on my troosers

    They'd like to wed me everyone
    Just let them catch me if they can
    You canna put the brakes on a highland man
    Who doesn't like wearing troosers

    To wear the kilt is my delight
    It isn't wrong, I know it's right
    The highlanders would get afright
    If they saw me in my troosers

    Well I caught a cold and me nose was raw
    I had no handkerchief at all
    So I hiked up my kilt and I gave it a blow
    Now you can't do that with troosers
