​At It Again

This song is by Manus Lunny.

Though Geordie's a man I hav'ny seen lately,
I met with his brother in Tain.
Says I, "Do ye think that he's still off the drink?"
"Oh, no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!"

Aye we telt him and aye we warned him;
And aye he promised, but then...
At the turn o' yer back, he'd be right off the track;
And no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!

I asked him, "Is Geordie still makin' good whiskey?"
(He's prone to distill now and then.)
"He'd been testin' a sup, and near blew he's sel' up,
But no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!"

Aye we telt him and aye we warned him;
And aye he promised, but then...
At the turn o' yer back, he'd be right off the track;
And no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!

Geordie's the lad for courtin' the ladies;
He's tall and handsome, but vain.
He wed five or six, but they tired of his tricks;
And no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!

Aye we telt him and aye we warned him;
And aye he promised, but then...
At the turn o' yer back, he'd be right off the track;
And no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!

I remember when Geordie discovered the horses,
Then swore no to back them again.
All his horses got bate, he had devil a hate;
But no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!

Aye we telt him and aye we warned him;
And aye he promised, but then...
At the turn o' yer back, he'd be right off the track;
And no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!

The Baliff caught Geordie doon poachin' the salmon,
And off to the court he was taen;
But the truth for to tell, he'd a rest in his cell;
And no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN.

Aye we telt him and aye we warned him;
And aye he promised, but then...
At the turn o' yer back, he'd be right off the track;
And no, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!
