Rothesay Castle Steam Boat

 [708Notation] 

CHORUS. Yonder comes the Rothesay Castle, [Note 708.1]
                  Yonder comes the Rothesay Castle,
                  Smiling summer's at her heels,
                  And wha wi' business aye would wrestle?

We're glad to see her lofty prow,
And windows fring'd wi' mony a tassel;  [Note 708.2]
For pleasant were the jaunts I trow¹,
We took when in the Rothesay Castle.
     Yonder comes the Rothesay Castle,&c.

When we were there we ne'er thought lang;
In sooth¹ we ne'er gat time to weary,
For e'er we wist amid our sang,
She brought us into Inveraray¹
     Yonder comes the Rothesay Castle,&c.

Here choice of books and news we find,
Or range around the table festal;
Our cares are maistley left behind,
When seated in the Rothesay Castle.
     Yonder comes the Rothesay Castle,&c.

Now lead the way to summer's bow'rs,
Folk tire in streets and squares to jostle;
Our journey's done in twa'r three hours,
When ance we're in the Rothesay Castle.
     Yonder comes the Rothesay Castle,&c.

Ye western isles and creeks be glad,
Ye'll soon be in a merry bustle;
Your favourite boat's wide deck is clad,
By that ye'll ken the Rothesay Castle.
     Yonder comes the Rothesay Castle,&c
