SIMMER'S a pleasant time,
Flowers of every colour;

And I long for my true lover!

Ay waukin, Oh,
Waukin still and weary:
Sleep I can get nane,
For thinking on my dearie.—
When I sleep I dream,
When I wauk I'm irie;
Sleep I can get nane,
For thinking on my dearie.—

Lanely night comes on,
A' the lave are sleepin:
I think on my bonie lad,
And I bleer my een wi' greetin.—
Ay waukin &c.
