Duncan Gray cam here to wooA
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
On blythe Yule Night when we were fu'C
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Maggie coost her head fu' highC
Looked asklent and unco skeighC
Gart poor Duncan stand abeighD
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
-
Duncan fleeched and Duncan prayedE
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Meg was deaf as Ailsa CraigF
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Duncan sighed baith out and inG
Grat his een baith bleer't and blin'G
Spak o' lowpin ower a linnG
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
-
Time and Chance are but a tideH
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Slighted love is sair to bideH
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Shall I like a fool quoth heB
For a haughty hizzie deeB
She may gae to France for meB
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
-
How it comes let Doctors tellI
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Meg grew sick as he grew haleJ
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Something in her bosom wringsK
For relief a sigh she bringsK
And O her een they spak sic thingsK
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
-
Duncan was a lad o' graceK
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Maggie's was a piteous caseK
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
Duncan could na be her deathL
Swelling Pity smoored his WrathM
Now they're crouse and canty baithM
Ha ha the wooing o'tB
