Страница 100 - The friendly crack, the cheerfu' sang, Shall cheat the happy hours awa', Gar pleasure reign the e'ening lang, And laugh at biting frost and snaw. Blyth are we, &c. The cares that cluster round the heart,* And gar the bosom stound wi' pain, Shall get a fright afore we part, Will gar them fear to come again. Then, fill about, my winsome chiels, The sparkling glass will banish pine: Nae pain the happy bosom feels, Sae free o
Страница 75 - An' sae he'll ne'er offer to woo me again. Ye bonnie young lasses, be warn'd by my fate, Despise not the heart you may value too late ; Improve the sweet sunshine that now gilds the plain; With you it may never be sunshine again. The simmer o' life, ah ! it soon flits awa', An' the bloom on your cheek will soon dow in the snaw ; Oh ! think, ere you treat a fond youth wi' disdain, That, in age, the sweet flower never blossoms again.

Страница 39 - I said, would soon cure me of love. O, what had my youth with ambition to do? Why left I Amynta? why broke I my vow? O, give me my sheep, and my sheep-hook restore, And I'll wander from love and Amynta no more.
Страница 75 - Repulsed, he forsook me, an' left me to grieve, An mourn the sad hour that my swain took his leave ; Now, since I despised, an' was deaf to his mane, I fear he'll ne'er offer to woo me again t Oh ! wad he but now to his Jean be inclined, My heart in a moment wad yield to his mind; But I fear wi' some ither my laddie is taen, An' sae he'll ne'er offer to woo me again.
Страница 12 - John Anderson, my jo ! John Anderson, my jo, John, I wonder what ye mean, To rise sae early in the morn, And sit sae late at e'en. Ye'll blear out a...
Страница 74 - But, oh ! wad he offer to woo me again ! He said that he hoped I would yield an' be kind, But I counted his proffers as light as the wind ; I laugh'd at his grief, whan I heard him complain ; But, oh ! wad he offer to woo me again ! He flatter'd my locks, that war black as a slae, And praised my fine shape, frae the tap to the tae ; I flate, an' desired he wad let me alane ; But, oh ! wad he offer to woo me again ! Repulsed, he forsook me, an...
