Toast to the Lassies

Now, here's to the lassies

In skirt, dress and sashies.

The kindest of mankind,

'Til they change their mind!

Then the barbs, like a dart,

go straight to your heart.

From sweetness like sugar,

to "off wi' ya, bugger!"

Then, as quick as you please,

they set your mind at ease.

Everything is all right,

And it's cuddling tonight!

They keep the home fires burning,

and help with the earning.

But, they know the spendin'

and are good at ear bendin.'

They want to talk feelings,

While our senses are reeling.

But what's to explain,

The Chiefs lost again! (substitute any sports team name!)

They keep us in clean shirts,

a pressed kilt for the kirk,

and socks and shorts,

Ah, they're such good sports!

We'd be lost without them,

just don't try to out-pout them!

But they're quick to concede

It's us that they need!

They tolerate our weakness

And our goofi- and geek-ness.

And they're there by our side,

Not just along for the ride.

So, lads, if you please,

Don't get down on your knees.

But stand and raise your glasses,

And we'll toast the bonnie lasses!
