O.

O lovely maid! how dear's thy pow'r
O Bell, thy looks have kill'd my heart
O Sandy, why leaves thou thy Nelly to mourn

O Belly Bell and Mary Gray

Of race divine thou needs must be

O Mary, thy graces and glances
O fteer her up and had her gawn
O mither dear, I gin to fear

Of all the birds whofe tuneful throats
One day I heard Mary fay
O come away, come away
O had away, had away

O wha's that at my chamber door
Over the mountains

O waly, waly up the bank

O virgin kind! we canna tell
O feany, Jeany, where has thou been
O dear Peggy, love's beguiling
Of all the girls that are fo fmart
Oh love! if a god thou wilt be
On a bank befide a willow

Oh lead me to fome peaceful gloom
Oh lead me to fome peaceful room
Of all comforts I mifcarried

Oh! the charming month of May
One evening as I lay

One long Whitfun holy-day
One April morn, when from the fea
O furprising lovely fair

On a bank of flowers

Oh! happy, happy grove
On Etrick banks, in a fummer's night
O my heart! my heavy, heavy heart
O grant me, kind Bacchus

Of Leifter, fam'd for maidens fair,
One Sunday after mafs

Of all the torment, all the care

[blocks in formation]

Of all the girls in our town

395

Our Polly is a fad flut! nor heeds what we taught her 418
Our felves, like the great, to secure a retreat
Old Chiron thus preach'd to his pupil Achilles
On Whitsunday morning

Of all the trades from eaft to west

P.

Pain'd with her flighting Jamie's love
Peggy, now the king's come
Pious Selinda goes to prayers
Pray now, John, let Jug prevail
Pretty parrot fay, when I was away
Phillis the fairest of love's foes

Prithee, Sufan, what doft mufe on
Prithee, Billy, be'nt fo filly
Proud woman, I fcorn you
Phillis defpife not your faithful lover
Pure as the new-falleh fnow appears

R.

Return hameward, my heart again
Rob's Jock came to woo our Jenny
Remember, Damon, you did tell

S.

Subjected to the power of love
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
Sweet fir, for your courtefie
Swift, Sandy, Young, and Gay
Somnolente

Since all thy vows, falfe maid
Sandy in Edinburgh was born
Saw ye Jenny Nettles

Sound, found the mufick, found it
Speak on, speak thus, and still my grief
Stately ftept he east the wa'
Send home my long ftray'd eyes to me
Sweet are the charms of her I love

Stella and Flavia every hour
See, fee, fhe wakes, Sabina wakes
See, fee, my Seraphina comes

259

Since times are so bad, I must tell thee, fweet-heart 261
See, firs, fee here! a doctor rare
Selinda fure's the brightest thing
Some fay women are like the fea
Since we die by the help of good wine
Shall I, wafting in despair

So much I love thee, O my treasure !
Singing charms the bleft above
Saw ye the nymph whom I adore
Since drinking has power to bring us relief
Sweet Nelly, my heart's delight
Since laws were made for ev'ry degree
Sum up all the delights

T.
Tho' beauty like the rofe
Teach me, Chloe, how to prove
"Tis I have feven braw new gowns
The meal was dear fhort fyne
Tell me, Hamilla, tell me why
Tell me, tell me, charming creature
'Twas fummer, and the day was fair
The last time I came o'er the moor
The lafs of Peaty's mill

Tho' for feven years and mair honour, &c.
Tibby has a fore of charms

The pawky auld carle came o'er the lee
The lawland lads think they are fine
The collier has a daughter

This is not mine ain houfe

The maltman comes on Munday
There was a wife won'd in a glen
The thepherd Adonis

The carle he came o'er the croft
The night her filent fable wore
Twas at the fearful midnight hour

The fun was funk beneath the hifl
The morn was fair, faft was the air
The widow can bake, and the widow can brew 149
The lawland maids gang trig and fine
'Tis not your beauty, nor your wit

The bonny grey eyed morning begins to peep
Ten years, like Troy, my ftubborn heart

The ordinance a-board

Tho' cruel you feem to my pain
Tranfported with pleafure
The fages of old

The fmiling morn, the breathing fpring
There came a ghoft to Margret's door
'Twas at the fhining mid-day hour
There was anes a May, and the loo'd na men
The graces and the wandring loves
Tarry woo, tarry woo

The terrible law, when it faftens its paw
The play of love is now begun

To Fanny fair could I impart
The nymph that undoes me is fair and unkind
The fweet rofy morn peeps over the hills
The fun was funk beneath the hill
Thirfis, a young and am'rous fwain
There gowans are gay, my joy
Thro' all the employments of life
'Tis woman that feduces all mankind
The miser thus a fhilling fees
The gamefters and lawyers are jugglers alike
The first time at the looking-glafs

Thus gamefters united in friendship are found
The modes of the court fo common are grown
The gypfies came to our good lord's gate
The world is always jarring

'Tis wine that clears the understanding
There were three lads in our town
The manners of the great affect

U.

Upon a fair morning for foft recreation
Upbraid me not, capricious fair

W.
What beauties does Flora difclofe
When we meet again, Phely
When flowry meadows deck the year
Why hangs that cloud upon thy brow
While fops in faft Italian verfe
When we came to London town
When innocent paftime our pleasure did crown
While fome for pleasure pawn their health
When trees did bud, and fields were green
What means this niceness now of late
With broken words, and down caft eyes
Where wad bonny Anne ly
Will ye go to the ew-bughts, Marion
What numbers fhall the mufe repeat
When I think on my lad

When abfent from the nymph I love
With tuneful pipe and hearty glee
When fummer comes the fwains on Tweed
Willy, ne'er enquire what end

When I've a faxpence under my thumb
When beauty blazes heavenly bright
While our flocks are a feeding
When Phoebus bright the azure skies
Willy was a wanton wag

When firft my dear laddie gade to the green hill
Were I affur'd you'll conftant prove
Well I agree, you're fure of me
When hope was quite funk in defpair
Whilft I fondly view the charmer
Whilft I gaze on Chloe trembling
