Come, choose from the east,
Come, choose from the west, Come, choose out the very one
That you love best.
Now there's a couple
Married in joy; First a girl,
And then a boy.
Now you're married;
You must obey Every word
Your husband says.
Take a kiss
And walk away, And remember the promise
You've made to-day.
—Fochabers (Rev. W. M'Gregor).
