No. 54. Ilk care and fear, when thou art near.
Tune: Braes o' Balquhidder Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 193.
Chorus. And I'll kiss thee yet, yet,
And I'll kiss thee o'er again ; And I'll kiss thee yet, yet, My bonie Peggy Alison.
Ilk care and fear, when thou art near,
I ever mair defy them, O ; Young kings upon their hansel throne
Are no sae blest as I am, O!
When in my arms, wi' a' thy charms, I clasp my countless treasure, O;
I seek nae mair o' Heav'n to share Than sic a moment's pleasure, O !
And by thy een, sae bonie blue, I swear I'm thine for ever, O!
And on thy lips I seal my vow, And break it shall I never, O!
