O that’s the lassie o my heart – Song – {O that ‘s the lassie o my heart}

O WAT ye wha that lo'es me,
And has my heart a keeping?
O sweet is she that lo'es me,
As dews o' summer weeping,
In tears the rosebuds steeping.--------

Chorus----------
O that 's the lassie o' my heart,
My lassie, ever dearer;
O that 's the queen o' womankind,
And ne'er a ane to peer her.---

If thou shalt meet a lassie
In grace and beauty charming,
That e'en thy chosen lassie,
Erewhile thy breast sae warming,
Had ne'er sic powers alarming.--------
O that 's &c.----

If thou hast heard her talking,
And thy attention 's plighted,
That ilka body talking
But her, by thee is slighted;
And thou art all delighted.----
O that 's &c.----

If thou hast met this Fair One,
When frae her thou hast parted,
If every other Fair One,
But her, thou hast deserted,
And thou art broken-hearted.--------
O that 's the lassie o' my heart,
My lassie, ever dearer:
O that 's the queen o' womankind,
And ne'er a ane to peer her.---
