  I HAE LAID A HERRING IN SAUT  

I hae laid a herring in saut--
    Lass, gin ye lo'e me, tell me now;
I hae brew'd a forpit o' maut,
    And I canna come ilka day to woo:

I hae a calf that will soon be a cow--
    Lass, gin ye lo'e me, tell me now;
I hae a stook, and I'll soon hae a mowe,
    And I canna come ilka day to woo:

I hae a house upon yon moor--
    Lass, gin ye lo'e me, tell me now;
Three sparrows may dance upon the floor,
    And I canna come ilka day to woo:

I hae a but, and I hae a ben--
    Lass, gin ye lo'e me, tell me now;
A penny to keep, and a penny to spen',
    And I canna come ilka day to woo:

I hae a hen wi' a happitie leg--
    Lass, gin ye lo'e me, tell me now;
That ilka day lays me an egg,
    And I canna come ilka day to woo:

I hae a cheese upon my skelf--
    Lass, gin ye lo'e me, tell me now;
And soon wi' mites 'twill rin itself,
    And I canna come ilka day to woo.
