YON, YON, YON, LASSIE.

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.
