HIGHLAND MARY.
gods ! at that moment his optics descried His wife, with a tall, dashing youth at her side,
Who was witty, and pretty, and smart, and all that Mr. Tibbs, bolting out, cried, with dreadful grimace, "Vile woman,! now dare look your spouse in the face-!" Sire screamed, and exclaimed, " You base wretch I in good
time My maid has confessed all your wicked design— For she's witty, and pretty, and smart, and all that
" I'm resolved on revenge—I your steps have waylaid, And my cousin, the captain, I've brought to my aid—
He ia witty, and pretty, and smart, and all that; With him you may settle the case in dispute, And I'll give you, gratis, this lesson to boot: When next with my maid you would kiss, and all that, Pray remember your wile may return 'tit for tat,'
If she's witty, and pretty, and smart, and all that !"
HIGHLAND MARY.
Ye banks, and braes, and streams around
The castle o' Montgomery, Green be your woods, and fair your flowers,
Your waters never drumlie! There Simmer faust unfauld her rdbes
And there the langest tarry; For there I took the last fareweel
O' my sweet Highland Mary.
How sweetly bloomed the gay green birlt
How rich the hawthorn's blossom, As, underneath their fragrant shade,
I clasped her to my bosom! The golden hours, on angel-wings,
Flew o'er me and my dearie; For dear to me as light and life
Was my sweet Highland Mary.
