SHE 's fair and fause that causes my smart,
I lo'ed her meikle and lang;
She 's broken her vow, she 's broken my heart,
And I may e'en gae hang.------
A coof cam in wi' routh o' gear,
And I hae tint my dearest dear;
But woman is but warld's gear,
Sae let the bonie lass gang.----
Whae'er ye be that woman love,
To this be never blind;
Nae ferlie 'tis tho' fickle she prove,
A woman has 't by kind:
O woman lovely, woman fair!
An angel form 's faun to thy share;
'Twad been o'er meikle to gi'en thee mair,
I mean an angel mind.
