First Line: O death, hadst thou but spar'd his life
Last Line: Thou'se get the saul o'boot.
Subject(s): Marriage; Weddings; Husbands; Wives


O Death, had'st thou but spar'd his life,
Whom we this day lament,
We freely wad exchanged the wife,
And a' been weel content.

Ev'n as he is, cauld in his graff,
The swap we yet will do't;
Tak thou the carlin's carcase aff,
Thou'se get the saul o'boot.
