Geàrr-chunntas

In this temperance song, a woman comes to find her husband at the ale-house, in order to beg him to give up drinking and return to his family; she reminds him of how different and happy their lives were together when they first courted. After hearing that his children have no food to eat, he comes to his senses and leaves the tavern, cursing the whisky that 'made me so frisky'. The last verse tells that he is a changed man and lives happily with his family.
