" Now baud your tongue, young Hazelgreen,
And let your folly be :
If ye be sick for that ladye,
She's thrice as sick for thee :
She's thrice as sick for thee, my son,

Led her through bouir and ha' ;
<' Cheer up your heart, my dearest May,

Frae Jock o' Hazelgreen."

" Where gat ye your dinner. Lord Randal, my son ?
"Where gat ye your dinner, my handsome young man ?"
