Here is a Lass With a Golden Ring

Here is a Lass With a Golden Ring

     Here is a lass with a golden ring,
     Golden ring, golden ring;
     Here is a lass with a golden ring,

So early in the morning.

     Gentle Johnie kissed her,
     Three times blessed her,
     Sent her a slice o' bread and butter,

In a silver saucer.

     Who shall we send it to,
     Send it to, send it to;
     Who shall we send it to?

To [Mrs Ritchie's] daughter.
