  • From 'Gin I Was God' by Charles Murray:

    Doric

    GIN I was God, sittin' up there abeen,
    Weariet nae doot noo a' my darg was deen,
    Deaved wi' the harps an' hymns oonendin' ringin',
    Tired o' the flockin' angels hairse wi' singin',
    To some clood-edge I'd daunder furth an', feth,
    Look ower an' watch hoo things were gyaun aneth.

    Translation

    IF I were God, sitting up there above,
    Wearied no doubt, now all my work was done,
    Deafened by the harps and hymns unending ringing,
    Tired of the flocking angels hoarse with singing,
    To some cloud edge I'd saunter forth and, faith,
    Look over and watch how things were going beneath.
