I Courted A Lassie

TUNE: (Unknown)

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation


I Courted A Lassie

Chorus
And e'en let her gang - And e'en let her gang,
And e'en let her gang, say I.

1.
I courted a lassie, I courted her lang,
The lassie she did comply;
But she has proved fickle and broken her vow,
And e'en let her gang, say I.

 


I Courted A Girl

Chorus
And even let her go - And even let her go,
And even let her go, say I.


I courted a girl, I courted her long,
The girl she did comply;
But she has proved fickle and broken her vow,
And even let her go, say I.
