DINNA ASK ME, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O, dinna ask me gin I lo'e ye [or, thee]
Last Line: Gin he'd prove fause to me!
Subject(s): Love - Beginnings


O, DINNA ask me gin I lo'e ye:
Troth, I daurna tell!
Dinna ask me gin I lo'e ye, --
Ask it o' yoursel'.
O, dinna look sae sair at me,
for weel ye ken me true;
O, gin ye look sae sair at me,
I daurna look at you.
When ye gang to yon braw braw town,
And bonnier lassies see,
O, dinna, Jamie, look at them,
Lest ye should mind na me.
For I could neve bide the lass
That ye'd lo'e mair than me;
And O, I'm sure my heart wad brak,
Gin he'd prove fause to me!
