[Tea-Table Miscellany Contents]
Sung by Jenny, p. 48.
WELL I agree, ye’re sure of me;
Next to my father gae.
Make him content to give consent,
He’ll hardly say you nay:
For you have what he wad be at,
And will commend you well,
Since parents auld think love grows cauld,
Where bairns want milk and meal.
Shou’d he deny, I carena by,
He’d contradict in vain.
Tho’ a’ my kin had said and sworn,
But thee I will have nane.
Then never range, or learn to change,
Like these in high degree:
And if you prove faithful in love,
You’ll find nae fault in me.
