There is a babe betwixt thy sides, Oh ! sae sair's it grieves me 1"
" O didna I tell ye, auld Ingram,                          125
Ere ye socht me to wed, That Lord Wa'yates, your sister's son,
Had been into my bed ? "
" Then father that bairn on me, Maisery, O father that bairn on me;                               wo
And ye sail hae a rigland shire Your mornin' gift to be."
" O sarbitl" says the Ladie Maisery,
" That ever the like me befa', To father my bairn on auld Ingram,                  i&i
Lord Wa'yates in my father's ha'.
" O sarbit!" says the Ladie Maisery,
" That ever the like betide, To father my bairn on auld Ingram,
And Lord Wa'yates beside."
