Contains some scenes of a sexual nature

There Cam A Cadger

There cam a cadger out o' Fife, I watna how they ca'd him; He play'd a trick to our gudewife, When fient a body bad him He took a lang thing stout and strang, An' strack it in her gyvel; An' ay she swore she fand the thing Gae borin' by her nyvel.
