Tune—"Ruffian's Rant."

An old song.

O, yon, yon, yon, lassie,
 Yon, yon, yon,
I never met a bonny lass,
 But I wad play at yon.

 O yon, yon, &c.

I never saw a silken gown,
 But I wad kiss the sleeve o't;
I never saw a maidenhead,
 That I wad spier the leave o't.

 O yon, yon, &c.

Tell na me o' Meg my wife,
 Her crowdie has na savour,
But gie to me a bonny lass,
 And let me steal the favour.

 O yon, yon, &c.

Gie me her I kissed yestreen,
 I vow but she was handsome,
For ilka hair upon her c—t,
 Was worth a royal ransom.

 O yon, yon, &c.
