EARL MAR'S DAUGHTER
When day was gone, and night was come,
About the evening-tide, This lady spied a gallant youth
Stand straight up by her side.
'From whence cam' ye, young man ?' she said ;
' That does surprise me sair; My door was bolted right secure,
What way hae ye come here ?'—
' O haud your tongue, ye lady fair,
Lat a' your folly be ; Mind ye not o' your turtle-doo
Ye wiled from aff the tree ?'—
v What country come ye frae ?' she said,
' An' what's your pedigree ? '— ' O it was but this verra day
That I cam' ower the sea.
' My mither lives on foreign isles,
A queen o' high degree; And by her spells I am a doo With you to live an' dee.'—
' O Coo-me-doo, my love sae true, Nae mair frae me ye'se gae.'—
' That's never my intent, my love ;
As ye said, it shall be sae.'
