202              THE TRUMPETER OP FTYIE.
He kissed my lips five thousand timesr
And ay he ca'd me bonny; And a' the answer he gat frae me,
Was, My bonny Andrew Lammie ! "
"' Love, I maun gang to Edinburgh; u Love, I maun gang and leave thee ;'
I sighed right sair, and said nae mair, But, O gin I were wi' ye !"
" But true and trusty will I be,
As I am Andrew Lammie ;                        20
I'll never kiss a woman's mouth,
Till I come back and see thee."
" And true and trusty will I be,
As I am Tiftie's Annie; I'll never kiss a man again,                            2;
Till ye come back and see me."
Syne he's come back frae Edinburgh,
To the bonny hows o' Fyvie ; And ay his face to the nor-east,
To look for Tiftie's Annie.                         *•
" I ha'e a love in Edinburgh,
Sae ha'e I intill LeithJ man ; I hae a love intill Montrose,
Sae ha'e I in Dalkeith, man.
