Adown winding Nith I did wanderB
To mark the sweet flowers as they springC
Adown winding Nith I did wanderB
Of Phillis to muse and to singC
Awa wi' your belles and your beautiesD
They never wi' her can compareE
Whaever has met wi' my PhillisF
Has met wi' the queen o' the fairE

-
The daisy amus'd my fond fancyG
So artless so simple so wildH
Thou emblem said I o' my PhillisF
For she is simplicity's childH

-
The rose bud's the blush o' my charmerB
Her sweet balmy lip when 'tis prestI
How fair and how pure is the lilyG
But fairer and purer her breastI
-

-
Yon knot of gay flowers in the arbourB
They ne'er wi' my Phillis can vieJ
Her breath is the breath o' the woodbineK
Its dew drop o' diamond her eyeJ

-
Her voice is the song of the morningC
That wakes thro' the green spreading groveJ
When Phoebus peeps over the mountainsL
On music and pleasure and loveJ
-
VIJ
-
But beauty how frail and how fleetingC
The bloom of a fine summer's dayM
While worth in the mind o' my PhillisF
Will flourish without a decayM
Awa wi' your belles and your beautiesD
They never wi' her can compareE
Whaever has met wi' my PhillisF
Has met wi' the queen o' the fairE
