No. 220. She play'd the loon or she was married.
Tune : My wife's a ivanton wee thing Stewart's Reels, 1762, p. 30.
Chorus. [My wife's a wanton wee thing, My zvife's a wanton wee thing, My wtfe's a wanton wee thing, She winna be guided by me.
She play'd the loon or she was married, She play'd the loon or she was married, She play'd the loon or she was married, She'll do it again or she die.]
She sell'd her coat and she drank it, She sell'd her coat and she drank it, She row'd hersell in a blanket, She winna be guided by me.
She mind't na when I forbade her, She mind't na when I forbade her, I took a rung and I claw'd her,
And a braw gude bairn was she.
