Waylaid In Gretna Green

Went away on holiday up to Scotland bound
Gretna green the venue shortly we had found
Don your suit husband she did order me
Why that my love later you will see

Two P.M she said guess I'll tell you now
She pre-booked an order in Gretna Green a wedding vow
Than we unto their garden a tree we planted there
We were also happy signed our name with care

Back to our hotel our name in Scotland laid
We were very happy our holiday it had made
Than our days numbered away from Gretna Green
Still we were so happy our holiday in Scotland been

Than it was too England Yorkshire to Holmfirth
There to visit summer wine where it's happy birth
Year two thousand and nine Treassa, myself were fine
Happy about our holiday summer of zero nine
