This is another of Wilfried Drygala's favourite Scottish songs and it was often performed in the "Idle Fellows". He sang it in a light bantering manner. The song is an amusing account of a lady weaver from Dundee defending her honour, to whit her "me thingy-ma-jig", against a rascally Glaswegian, and failing. In the last verse she gives a good piece of advice:
    "And never let a Glasge fella an inch above your knee
    Never stand at the back of a post or up against a wall
    For if you do you can fairly say that your thingy-ma-jig's awa.
