Re: The Blue Doo ?



Here's the actual poem...it's by Jimmy Copeland

THE BLUE DOO

There was wunst a wee doo,
An' this wee doo was blue,
It had got itsel' right in a mess.
Now it might be that you
Never heard of this doo,
Well ah'll tell ye for you'd never guess.

Well, this wee doo was seeck,
It had banjo'd its beak,
Jist wi' stabbin' a daud of stale breid.
When alang came a boy,
Jist a durrty wee boy,
Who had snotters an' beasts in his heid.

Said the wee boy - Aw jings!
Ah love a' things wi' wings!
An' he gave the wee doo a big cuddle,
Then he mendit its beak,
He jist gave it a tweak,
Then he saftened its breid in a puddle.

Well, the doo gulped the breid,
It wiz hunger - no' greed,
An' it said tae the boy - Thanksalo',
For yir jist a wee pe',
An' ah'll never forge'
End the truth is it nevah forgot!

So youse people take heed,
Ayeways saften doo's breid,
An' never smack boys who have beasts in thir heid,
For ye might smack the boy
Who was good to the doo,
An' the next thing ye'll know is -
The doo might get you!

cheers
Jim

and the expression, "It's a blue doo", is fairly common in Scotland.

That's blue 'do' Bob. The same usage as when we'd say there's
a 'do' (performance) at the Miner's Welfare the nicht.

So, if a 'do' is a performance, what's a blue 'do'?
Enquiring minds would like to know...

A poor/bad performance.. like some of the games played by soccer teams :)
