"And we'll kendle sic a loo aroond the fause Argyle, And well licht it wi* a spark oot o' Airlie."
(He comes to Lady Ogilvte's door.)
3    "Coom doon stairs, Lady Ogilvie," he cried, "Coom doon and kiss me fairly,
Or I'll swear by the hilt of my broad sword That I'll leave nae a standing stane on Airlie."
4    "I will nae coom doon for thee, fause Argyll And ne'er will I kiss thee fairly.
I will nae coom doon for thee, fause Argyle, Though you leave nae a standing stane on Airlie.
5    "There's seven bonnie sons are there born unto me; And the eighth will ne'er see his daddy.
And kent that I had as many, many more, I'd gie them all to fight for Prince Charlie."
