I love a Lassie


I love a lassie, a bonnie, bonnie lassie
She’s as pure as the lily in the dell
She’s as sweet as the heather
The bonnie purple heather
Mary, ma Scotch bluebell

I love a lassie, a bonnie Heiland lassie
If you saw her you would fancy her as well
I met her in September, popped the question in November
So soon I’ll ha’e her to myself
Her faither has consented, so I’m feelin’ quite contented
Cause I’ve been and sealed the bargain wi’ a kiss
I sit and weary, weary, when I think about my dearie
And you’ll always hear me singing this


I love a lassie, a bonnie Hieland lassie
She can warble like a blackbird in the dell
She’s an angel ev’ry Sunday, but a jolly lass on Monday
She’s as modest as her namesake the bluebell
She’s nice, she’s neat, she’s tidy and I meet her ev’ry Friday
That’s a special nicht, you bet, I never miss
I’m enchanted, I’m enraptured since ma heart the darlin’ captured
She’s intoxicated me with bliss
