I'D RATHER HAVE A PIECE THAN A KISS OF MY JO. AKA and see "Bundle and Go (3)," "I’d Rather have a Piss than a Kiss," "Wee Wee Man (The)," "William's Return." Scottish, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The tune is better-known as "Bundle and Go." Aird's melody is perhaps a pipe version, as the latter two strains seem to be piping variations. 'D' major is the key in Aird's publication, although the key of 'G' seems more appropriate. 'Piece' in the title probably means a coin.
