O LAY thy loof in mine lass,
In mine lass, in mine, lass;
And swear on thy white hand lass,
That thou wilt be my ain.

A slave to love's unbounded sway,
He aft has wrought me meikle wae;
But now, he is my deadly fae,
Unless thou be my ain.
O lay thy loof &c.

There 's monie a lass has broke my rest,
That for a blink I hae lo'ed best;
But thou art queen within my breast
For ever to remain.
O lay thy loof &c.
