214 THE LOWLANDS OF HOLLAND.
Repent it shall I never,                                t
Until the day I die, But the lowlands of Holland
Hae twinn'd my love and me.
" My love lies in the saut sea,
And I am on the side,                            10
Enough to break a young thing's heart,
Wha lately was a bride; Wha lately was a bonnie bride,
And pleasure in her e'e, But the lowlands of Holland                      is
Hae twinn'd my love and me.
" My love he built a bonnie ship,
And set her to the sea, Wi' seven score brave mariners
To bear her companie;                            20
Threescore gaed to the bottom,
And threescore died at sea, And the lowlands of Holland
Hae twinn'd my love and me.
" My love has built another ship               as
And set her to the main ; He had but twenty mariners,
And all to bring her hame ; The stormy winds did roar again,
The raging waves did rout,                    30
