O GIN I HAD HER.

Tune"Saw ye na my Peggy."

An old fragment.

 

O gin I had her,
O gin I had her,
O gin I had her,
 Black altho' she be;
I wad lay her bale,
I'd gar her spew her kail;
She ne'er sou'd keep a meal,
 Till she dandl'd it on her knee.


She says I am light
To manage matters right,
That I've nae might or weight
 To fill a lassie's pock;
But wad she tak' a yokin',
I'd soon set her a bockin',
I'd set a cradle rockin',
 Wi' a sample o' the stock.
