No. 231. It's now the day is dawin.
Tune: Three gudefellows ayont the glen. Scots Mus. Museum, 1796, No. 442.
ChorusThere 's three true gude fellows, There's three true gude fellows, There's three true gude fellows, Down ayont yon glen!
It's now the day is dawin,
But or night do fa' in, Whase cock 's best at crawin,
Willie, thou sail ken !
No. 232. Deluded swain, the pleaszire.
Tune : The Collier's bonie lassie (see No. 44).
Deluded swain, the pleasure The fickle fair can give thee
Is but a fairy treasure—
Thy hopes will soon deceive thee :
The billows on the ocean, The breezes idly roaming,
The clouds' uncertain motion— They are but types of woman.
Oh! art thou not ashamed To doat upon a feature ?
If man thou wouldst be named, Despise the silly creature!
Go, find an honest fellow ;
Good claret set before thee. Hold on till thou art mellow,
And then to bed in glory !
