Notaichean a' Chlàir - 1 verse of 4 lines with chorus before and after. Piano accompaniment by Jean Stewart.
The song to which this fragment belongs tells of a woman's baby whose feet are accidentally burned by a falling pot [in some cases a burning coal or cinder]. The feet are then wrapped in a cap. This is one of many variants on the traditional 'Hap and Row'.
