No. 42. Wishfully I look and languish
Tune : Borne wee thing Scots Musical Museum, 1792, No. 341.
Chorus. Bonie wee thing, cannie wee thing, Lovely wee thing, wert thou mine, I wad wear thee in my bosom Lest my jewel it should tine.
Wishfully I look and languish
In that bonie face o' thine, And my heart it stounds wf anguish,
Lest my wee thing be na mine.
Wit and Grace and Love and Beauty
In ae constellation shine; To adore thee is my duty,
Goddess o' this soul o' mine!
