THERE are tears o' pity, an' tears o' wae,
An' tears for excess o' joy will fa';
Yet the tears o' luve are sweeter than a'!

There are sighs o' pity, an' sighs o' wae,
An' sighs o' regret frae the saul will gae;
Yet the sighs o' luve are sweeter than a'!

There's the look o' pity, the look o' wae,
The look o' frien', an' the look o' fae;
Yet the look o' luve is sweeter than a'!

There's the smile o' friends when they come frae far,
There's the smile o' joy in the festive ha';
Yet the smile o' luve is sweeter than a'!
