Hejaid LieJawnathhwCo lonnii as me,
He haiqjit nie haith Rinas and mony bratliiiws,
And were ne my Hearts licht I wad dye ,
He had a wee Titty that lo'ed na me,
Becauje I was twice as bonny as 0ie
Theyjaid I had neither Cow nor Calf,
Nor drops of drink runs thro' the drawf
Wor Tickles of3L?alrunsthro'the null Eye,
And were ne my Hearts liaht I wad due .

S'ie fpyed vie as I came o'er the Lee,
She raifdfLcl a Tother twixthim %tfiismother. And thenjhe ran in and made rich a din.

The wife tank a Divalm and laydown to dye,
She main'd andlhearainid out of Dollar h^paiii
Tillhe vowd that he ne'er woudjee me aajiin .

And -were ne my Hearts liaht I wad dye .
