A lovely lass to a friar came
Ah, Chloris, cou'd I now but Gt
As from a rock past all relief
Auld Rob Morris that wins in yon glen
As Sylvia in a forest lay
And I'll o’er the moor to Maggy
At Polwart on the green
As walking forth to view the plain
Ah! why those tears in Nelly's eyes
Ah! the shepherd's mournful fate
As I went forth to view the spring
Adieu for a while, my native green plains
An I'll away to bonny Tweed-fide.
As early I walk'd on the first of sweet May
Although I be but a country-lass
As I sat at my spinning-wheel
Adieu the pleasing sports and plays

A fouthland Jenny that was right bonny
As I came in by Teviot fide
A cock laird fa cadgie
At ferting day and rising morn
A nymph of the plain
All in the Downs the fleet was moor'd
Ah ! bright Belinda, hither fly
Alexis Thunn'd his fellow.fwains
A quire of bright beauties
As charming Clara walk'd alone
Amongst the willows on the grass
A trifling Tong ye fhall hear
As the snow in valleys lying
Awake, thou fairest thing in nature
A four reformation
As mulmg ( rang’d in a meadow alone
All you that would refine


As down in the meadows I chànced to pass
A cobler there was, and he liv'd in a stalt
As I am a friend
Ab! woes me, poor IVilly cry'd
As tippling John was jogging on
As after noon, on summer's day
Alexis, how artless a lover
A maid is like the golden ore
A fox may steal your hens, Sir

was milking of the cows
A woman's ware like china
Afist your vot'ry, friendly Nine

By a murmuring stream a fair fhepherdefs lay
Blate Jonny faintly teld fair fean his mind
Bright Cynthia's power divinely great
By smooth winding Tay a fwain was reclining
Beneath a beech's grateful shade
By the delicious warmness of thy mouth
Beneath a green shade I found a fair maid

Belly's beauties thinę fae bright
Bless’d as th' inmortal gods is he
Beauty from fancy takes its -arms
Balow, my boy, lie still and fleep
Bulk ye, bosk ye, my bonny bride
Blyth Jocky young and gay
Buk ye, busk ye, my bonny, bonny bride
Be wary, my Celia, when Celadon fues
Bless'd as th' immortal gods is he
Bacchus is a power divine
Belinda with affected mien
By the side of a great kitchen-fire
Bacchus must now his power, resign
Blyth, blyth, blyth was the
By mason's art the aspiring dome
Believe my fighs, my tears, my dear

Dumbarton's drums beat bonny 0
Dear Roger, if your Jenny geck
Duty and part of reason
Despairing beside a clear stream
Do not ask me, charming Phillis
Diogenes furly and proud
Damon, if you will believe me
Did ever swain a nymph adore
Daphnis stood penlive in the shade
Dear Chloe, while thus beyond measure
Dear Colin, prevent my warm blushes

Fy let us a' to the bridal
Farewell to Locbaber, and farewell, my Jean
For the sake of somebody
Fair, sweet, and young, receive a prize
Fair Iris and her swain
Fie ! Liza, scorn the little arts
Farewell, my bonny, witły, pretty Maggy
From rosy bowers, where sleeps the god of love
From grave lessons and restraint
Fair Amoret is gone astray
From White's and Will's
Flutt'ring spread thy purple pinions
False tho' she be to me and love

Gin ye meet a bonny lassie
Gi'e me a lass with a lump of land
Go, go, go, go, falsest of thy fex, begone
Ģently touch the warbling lyre
Gently ftir and blow the fire
Good Madam, when ladies are willing
Good people, draw near

How fweetly smells the simmer green
Hear me, ye nymphs, and every swain
Hearken, and I will tell you how
How blyth ilk morn was I to see
Happy's the love which meets return
Have you any pots or pans
Honest man John Ochiltree
How happy is the rural clown
How shall I be sad when a husband I hae
Hid from himself now by the dawa
Here are people and sports
How happy are we
Here's a health to the king, and a lasting peace.
He that will not merry merry be
Hark, how the trumpet sounds to battle

He who for ever
How happy a state does the miller possess
How bless’d are beggar-lasses
Having spent all my time
How pleafant a sailor's life passes
Happy the world in that bless'd age
Hark! away, 'tis the merry top'd horn
How happy are we
Hey! my kitten, a kitten

Is Hamilla then my own
In vain, fond youth, thỹ tears give o'er
*In April, when primroses paint the sweet plain
AI will awa' wi' my

Jocky faid to Jeany, Jeany, wilt thou do't
In winter when the rain raip'd cauld
It was the charming month of May
If love's a sweet pallion, why does it torment
In January last
I toss and tumble thro’the night
I have a green purse and a wee pickle gowd
