Once a Week (magazine)/Series 1/Volume 3/Jeannie
Where’s the way to Jeannie’s house?
Any child will guide you;
Or ye may find the road yoursel’,
The river runs beside you.
Where’s the way to Jeannie’s heart?
That I canna answer:
Hereabout or thereabout,
Find it if you can, sir.
Is this the way to Jeannie’s house?
As straight as you can go, sir;
Down the valley, through the wood,
And by the brook below, sir.
What’s the way to Jeannie’s heart?
That I canna say, sir;
A lang way up, a wee way down,
In troth, an unco’ way, sir.
Some on horse, and some on foot,
Comes hither many a score, sir:
Wha finds the way to Jeannie’s heart,
Maun bring a coach and four, sir.
