Lyrics - I Love A Lassie

I love a lassie, a bonnie Hielan' lassie,
If ye saw her ye would fancy her as well.
I met her In September, popp'd the question in November,
So I'll soon be havin' her a' to masel'!
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 aboot ma deary,
An' you'll always hear me singing this:

Chorus:
'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 bloomin' heather,
Mary, ma Scotch Bluebell.'

I love a lassie, a bonnie Hielan' 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' captur'd.
She's intoxicated me with bliss.

Chorus

I love a lassie, a bonnie Hielan' lassie,
I could sit and let her tease me for a week:
For the way she keeps behavin', well, I never pay for shavin
'Cause she rubs ma whiskers clean off with her cheek.
And underneath ma bonnet,
Where the hair was, there's none on it,
For the way she pats ma head has made me bald.
I ken she means no harm,
For she'll keep me nice and warm.
On the frosty nichts sae very cauld.

Chorus
