Well the moggy strolled in wi somehn clamped in its jaws.
It laid doon its present, an it waited for applause.
But the cratur wisni deid, and it struggled tae its feet,
an A wis fair amazed when it stertit ti speak:
‘Hiya, A’m a fairy, look, here’s ma pointy hat,
an A’d like ti show A’m grateful that ye saved me fae the cat,
well A widni tell a lee, an A’m no on the fiddle,
A’ll gie ye a reward if ye can guess ma riddle.
‘Can ye show me the ram, that disnae hiv a fleece?
Can you show me chips, that were never fried in grease?
Tell me where are the windaes nae sun shines through?
And where is the moose, that never ever grew?’
Well I gave the fairy answers, cos I wanted her prize.
Tellt her, ‘Chips urni greasy till ye turn them inti fries.
A ram has nae fleece once the shepherd’s yased his cutter,
and nae sun comes in the windae if ye jist close the shutter.
‘And when two wee mooses really love yin anither,
Well their wean is jist an egg till it grows in its mither.
So there ye hiv yer answers, and A think it a’ fits
so jist gie me ma reward, an that’s us quits.’
Well the fairy says, ‘Son, nae reward for you the night,
ye think ye’re awfy clever, but yer answer isni right.
The answer’s a computer, whit d’ye say ti that?’
Well, A lifted up the fairy, an A fed her tae the cat.
