Hermless by M Marra

Hermless
(Harmless)

(Michael Marra)

Wi' ma hand on ma hert and ma hert in ma mooth
(With my hand on my heart and my heart in my mouth)
Wi’ erms that could reach ower the sea
(wee arms that could reach over the sea)
Ma feet micht be big but the insects are safe
(My feet might be big but the insects are safe)
They'll never get stood on by me
(They'll never get stood on by me)

Hermless, hermless, There's never nae bother fae me
(Harmless, harmless, there's never no bother from me)
I ging to the libry, I tak' oot a book
(I go to the library, I take out a book)
And then I go hame for ma tea
(And then I go home for my dinner)

I save a' the coupons that come wi' the soup
(I save all the coupons that come with the soup)
And when I have saved fifty-three
(And when I have saved fifty-three)
I send awa fifty, pit three in the drar
(I send away fifty, put three in the drawers)
And something gets posted tae me
(And something gets posted to me)

Hermless, hermless, There's never nae bother fae me
(Harmless, harmless, there's never no bother from me)
I dae whit I’m telt and I tidy my room,
(I do what I'm told and tidy my room)
And then I come doon for my tea
(And then I come down for my dinner)

There's ane or twa lads wha I could cry my chums
(There's one or two lads what I could cry my chums)
They're canny and meek as can be
(They're clever and easy as can be)
There's Tam wi' his pigeons, And Wull wi his mice,
(There's Tam with his pigeons and Wull with his mice)
And Robert McLennan and me
(And Robert McLennan and me)

Hermless, hermless, There's never nae bother fae me
(Harmless, Harmless, there's never no bother from me)
I ging to the libry, I tak' oot a book
(I go to the library I take out a book)
And then I go hame for ma tea
(And then I go home for my dinner)

Hermless, hermless, there's never nae bother fae me
(Harmless, harmless, there's never no bother from me)
Naebody’d notice that I wasnae there
(Nobody notice that I wasn't there)
If I didnae come hame for ma tea
(If I didn't come home for my dinner)
