Charlie, He's My Darling
by Robert Burns
Chorus:
An' Charlie he's my darling,
My darling, my darling,
Charlie he's my darling -
The Young Chevalier!
'Twas on a Monday morning
Right early in the year,
That Charlie came to our town -
The Young Chevalier!
As he was walking up the street
The city for to view,
O, there he spied a bonie lass
The window looking thro'!
Sae light's he jimped up the stair,
And tirl'd at the pin;
And wha sae ready as hersel'
To let the laddie in!
He set his Jenny on his knee,
All in his Highland dress;
For brawlie weel he kend the way
To please a bonie lass.
It's up yon heathery mountain
And down yon scroggy glen,
We daurna gang a-milking
For Charlie and his men!
