Or had you ever a brother ? "                   11c
" JHng Henry was my father dear,
Queen Esther was my mother, Prince Henry was my brother dear,
And Fanny Flower my sister."

If Prince Henry was your brother dear, Then surely I'm your sister.
" Come to your bed, my sister dear,
It ne'er was wrang'd for me,                     
Bot an ae kiss of his merry mouth, As we cam owre the sea."
" Awa, awa, ye forenoon bride,
Awa, awa frae me ; I wudna hear my Annie greet, j                  125
For a' the gold I got wi' thee."

Cam owre the seas with me ; It's twa o' them will tak me hame,
And three I'll leave wi' thee.                     130
