History is reflected in the words of many songs of many folk groups

   The Maid of Tottenham - - As I came down from Tottenham - Upon a market day - - Twas there I spied a bonny lass - Her clothing was so gay - Her journey was to London - With buttermilk and whey - So we both jogged on together, my boys - Sing fal the dal diddle al day. - 2. God speed fair maid, says I to her - You are well overtook - At that she cast her head aside - And gave to me a look - That was as full of lechery - As letters in a book - And we both jogged on together, my boys - Sing fal the dal diddle al day. - - 3. And as we walked along the road - Together side by side - This pretty maid of Tottenham - Her garter came untied - For fear that she might lose it - Look out sweetheart, I cried - Your garter's coming down my love - Sing fal the dal diddle al day.

We had the music of the bagpipe every day at Armadale, Dunvegan and Col. Dr Johnson appeared fond of it, and used often to stand for some time with his ear close to the great drone. ~James Boswell
