GUANTANAMERA / MY WEE AUNTIE SARAH

Matt McGinn

 

Guantanamera translated from the Spanish into the English by my big pal, Pete Seeger.  But you know, originally that was a Scottish song...which was stolen from us by a survivor of the Armada...as he was making his way home to Spain by a devious route…via Auchenshuggle…wi his onion bag on his bike…he heard this man singing………

 

My wee Auntie Sarah

Was a right wee holy terror

My wee Auntie Sarah

Went to Majorca for the fair-a

 

When she came back her skin was daurker

Like a Larkfield Garage worker

She really had a corker

Of a time in Majorca

The consul had to pay her fare-a

To bring back oor wee Auntie Sara

 

While she was there she went into this hotel…she says, ‘Hey Jimmy, gie’s a Dubonit’.  So the guy gie’d her a Dubonit.  ‘Hey Jimmy…another Dubonit!’  18 Dubonits, she was lying oer the counter.  She says, ‘Hey Jimmy, don’t gie me any mair o they Dubonits, they’re gieing me heartburn’.  He says, ‘Look, in the first place, my name’s no Jimmy, it’s Charlie!  In the second place, it’s no Dubonit, it’s Dubonnet’.  Says, ‘In the third place…you’ve no got heartburn, just happens to be that your left thingymijiger’s stuck in the ashtray’.

Her man, he was in a worse position cos he went to this bullfight and he met this  señoritaSo he says, ‘Hey señorita, can I see you hame?’  She says, ‘Ole’.  So he says, ‘Fine’.  So he went too faur too soon, finished up before the court the next morning.  The judge says, ‘Look, there are gonnie be a lot of nasty details here’, he says, ‘we’re gonnie hold this case in camera’.  Guy says, ‘Wait a minute yer honour, I don’t know what you mean in camera’. The judge says, ‘Look, I know what I mean, the procurator knows what I mean, jury knows what I mean.  Clear the court, we’re holding it in camera’.  So he’s giving evidence on his own behalf, says, ‘Well I met this señorita bird’, says, ‘and I kissed her passionately, I kissed her passionately again’, he says, ‘well you know what I mean’.  Judge says, ‘No, I don’t know what you mean’.  The guy says, ‘Well I know what I mean’, says, ‘the procurator knows what I mean, jury knows what I mean', and he says, ‘if you’d been there wi yer wee camera, you’d know what I mean’.

 

My wee Auntie Sarah

Was a right wee holy terror

My wee Auntie Sarah

Went to Majorca for the fair-a

 

A tall dark stranger came to meet her

Saying, ‘Ole bella

señorita

He drank her vino by the litre

And let her play his Spanish guitar

But when her cash was done, he left her

He says, ‘I’ll maybe see ye efter’
