Pesma o metli

Buy Broom Buzzems“ (ili „Buy Broom Besums“) je pesma koju mnogi pripisuju Williamu Purvisu, verovatno poznatijem kao Blind Willie (1752-1832), koji je bio tekstopisac i pevač iz Tynesidea s kraja XVIII i početkom XIX veka. Za ovu pesmu mnogi smatraju da je njegovo najcenjenije delo („pièce de résistance“).

Buy Broom Buzzems

1. deo - originalna verzija

If ye want a buzzem, for to sweep yor hoose
Come to me, ma honey, ye may hae yor choose.

Refren:
Buy broom buzzems, buy them when they're new
Fine heather bred uns, better never grew.

Buzzems for a penny, rangers for a plack
If ye winnot buy, I'll tie them on my back.

Buy broom buzzems,

If aa had a horse, ad wad hev a cairt;
If aa had a wife, she wad tyek me pairt.

Buy broom buzzems,

Had aa but a wife, aa care not what she be
If she's but a woman, that's enyuf for me

Buy broom buzzems,

If she liked a droppie, her and I'd agree;
If she didn't like it, there's the mair for me.

Buy broom buzzems.
