Summary

This dance tune is about a St Kilda sheep with nimble feet. The sheep was angry as it did not like being moved to hilly ground. It could move very quickly and others could not keep up with it. When the sheep and her lamb went over to the sunny side, she became cross and her chain rattled.

Item Notes

Four quatrains and five choruses sung. The third is a repeat of the first.
