Queen Mary, Queen Mary This children’s street song has an identifiable connection with one printed in 1901 in  'Vagabond Songs and Ballads Part 2', edited by Robert Ford, called 'Nae Bonnie Laddie Will Tak Me Awa'.   According to Ewan McVicar in his reference work of Scots children’s songs and rhymes 'Doh Ray Me, When Ah Wis Wee', (2007), the song was still in use in Glasgow in the late twentieth century. Ford quotes an informant who says the song was written by a Falkirk man, Thomas Scot, about a young lady called Russell, the daughter of a local farmer, later becoming Queen Mary in the children’s version.   Both concern the young lady’s fashionable attire. It likely dates to the end of the eighteenth century.
