What Does The English (scottish) Word Haver Mean

Wed Dec 06, 2006 5:05 am

I was just listening to the Proclaimers song, I'm gonna be (500 miles) and some of the lyrics are:

Quote:
And if I haver, hey I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you

What is haver  Confused

Dr Johnson was also forced to listen to a Scotsman proclaiming on the wild and "noble prospects" of the Scottish countryside, and commented that "the noblest prospect a Scotchman ever sees is the road to England".  Wink
