Mount and Go

My parents married me o'er young
To an old carle both bald and dumb
His love was done and mine new sprung
An' I'll fly the plains wi' my laddie-o.

  Come, bonnie laddie, mount and go
  Hey, bonnie laddie, mount and go
  Come, bonnie laddie, mount and go
  Go, an' I'll go wi' ye o.

I will leave my good peat stack
Sae wid I my guid kailyard
Sae wid I my auld bald laird
And fly the plains wi' my laddie-o.

The old man he fell fast asleep
An' out o' his arms she quickly did creep
The keys o' the cabin she did keep
And she's flown the plains wi' her laddie-o

The auld man wakened in the ha'
The sheet was cauld an' she was awa'
An' the wecht o' hersel' o' gold an' a'
An' she's flown the plains wi' her laddie-o.

Ye'll gang doon tae yon seashore
An' ye'll see a ship faur she was before
An' ask at the skipper if she's been there
Or if any of the sailors saw her-o.

When they were sailing on the sea
She drank their health right merrily
An' she threw the wine glass into the sea
For joy she had won wi' her laddie-o.

When they landed o'er the lea
She was lady o' fifty ploughs an' three
She was lady o' fifty ploughs an' three
An' she dearly loves her laddie-o.
