Jockie was the Jaddie that held the pleugh,
~But now he's got gow'd and gear eneugh;
He thinks nae mair of me that weirs the plaiden coat;
May the fhame fa' the gear, and the blathrie o'tj
Jenny was the lafsie that mucked the byre,
Bat now fhe is clad in her filken attire,
And Jockie fays he loes her, and fwears he's me forgot;
' May the fhame fa' the gear, and the blathrie o'tl
But all this fhall never danton me,
Sae lang as I keep my fancy free:
For the lad that's fae inconftant, hes not worth a groat;
May the fhame fa' the gear, and the blathrie o't!
