No. 38. Ye gallants bright, I rede you right.
Tune: Bonie Ann Scots Musical Museum, 1790, No. 215.
Ye gallants bright, I rede you right,
Beware o1 bonie Ann; Her comely face sae fu' o' grace,
Your heart she will trepan : Her een sae bright like stars by night,
Her skin is like the swan ; Sae jimply lac'd her genty waist,
That sweetly ye might span.
Youth, Grace, and Love attendant move,
And Pleasure leads the van : In a' their charms, and conquering arms,
They wait on bonie Ann. The captive bands may chain the hands,
But love enslaves the man : Ye gallants braw, I rede you a',
Beware o' bonie Ann!
