I'll. LOVE : HUMOROUS                    iBl
But owre my left shouther I gae him a blink,
Lest neibors might say I was saucy; My wooer he caper'd as he'd been in drink,
And vow'd I was his dear lassie, dear lassie—
And vow'd I was his dear lassie.
I spier'd for my cousin fu' couthy and sweet, Gin she had recover'd her hearin ?
And how her new shoon fit her auld, shachl'd feet? But heavens! how he fell a swearin, a swearin— But heavens! how he fell a swearin!
He begged, for gudesake, I wad be his wife,
Or else I wad kill him wi' sorrow; So e'en to preserve the poor body in life,
I think I maun wed him to-morrow, to-morrow—
I think I maun wed him to-morrow.
No. 202. Wantonness for evermair.
Tune: Wantonness.
Scots Musical Museum, iiq6, No. 422.
Wantonness for evermair, Wantonness has been my ruin. Yet for a' my dool and care It's wantonness for evermair.
I hae lo'ed the Black, the Brown ; I hae lo'ed the Fair, the Gowden; A' the colours in the town— I hae won their wanton favour.
