Whay’s this man; Peter the Red?
A glass o’ rid a day,
Keeps boredum an’ doakters away.
An’ twa a day maks yea happy as weel,
Dinny fasch or complain its nae big deal.
Frae Bullaburra cums this auld man yung,
Aye; his years add up tae a tidy sum.
But a eighty seven years auld,
yea kin see frae his photie he’s no even bald.
Hiv’ a peek at the photie up top,
Aw his hair he stull has- like a blidy great mop.
Aye,an’ drinkin’ red is the richt direction
if yea want tae hiv’ Peter’s fine complextion.
So aw rid bubblers tha’ years ya fear,
It’s the Blidy Rid wine whit maks it clear,
If yea want tae live langer an’ hiv’ sum class,
Hiv’ a Rid wine or twa in a great big glass.
So Karen this day the work yiv’ dun,
Allowed me tae hiv’ a wee bit fun.
So a gless o’ wine fur Peter the Red,
Aye;maybe twa glesses an’ early tae bed.
Thanks Bonny Lass fur this classy portrait,
Evirybidy oan bubble kin see- it’s Blidy great.
At eighty seven he’s noo tucked up in bed,
Noo we aw ken a wee bit aboot this Peter the Red.
The Auld Yin.
