Release information
length: 2:47
(Trad / Daniel McLaughlin)

Chorus:
Doon in the wee room underneath the stair
Everybody's happy and everybody's there
We're a' makin' merry, each in his chair
Doon in the wee room underneath the stair
When you're tired and weary and you're feeling blue
Don't give way tae sorrow, we'll tell you what to do
Just tak' a trip tae Springburn and find the Quin's Bar there
And go doon tae the wee room underneath the stair
The king went oot a-hunting, his fortune for tae seek
He missed his train at Partick and went missing for a week
Oh after days of searching, of sorrow and despair
They found him in the wee room underneath the stair

If your team has won the day and you want tae cheer
Take a trip tae Springburn and order up a beer
Hae yersel' a bevvy, gie yersel' a tear
Doon in the wee room underneath the stair

When I'm auld and feeble and my bones are gettin' set
Ah'll no get cross and grumpy like other people get
Ah'm savin' up ma bawbees tae buy a hurly chair
Tae tak' me tae the wee room underneath the stair
