THE LAIRD OF WAEISTOtTN.
109
" Tak aff, tak aff my hood,
But lat my petticoat be ; Put my mantle o'er my head;                    35
For the fire I downa see.
" Now, a' ye gentle maids,
Tak warning now by me, And never marry ane
But wha pleases your e'e.                      «
" For he married me for love,
But I married him for fee ; And sae brak out the feud
That gar'd my dearie die."
