"Camlachie Burn", a song which has been preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.
This nonsense song presents some amusing yet implausible "facts" about Camlachie Burn, which now runs under Glasgow Green. It is doubtful indeed that whales ever swam in its waters, or that the Royal Yacht sailed on it!
