My Girl She's Airy

TUNE: Black Joke

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation



My girl she's airy, she's buxom and gay;
Her breath is as sweet as the blossoms in May;
A touch of her lips it ravishes quite.
She's always good natur'd, good humor'd and free;
She dances, she glances, she smiles upon me;
I never am happy when out of her sight.
Her slender neck her handsome waist
Her hair well curl'd her stays well lac'd
* * * * * *
* * * * * *
And O for the joys of a long winter night.



My girl she is airy, she is buxom and gay;
Her breath is as sweet as the blossoms in May;
A touch of her lips it ravishes quite.
She is always good natured, good humored and free;
She dances, she glances, she smiles upon me;
I never am happy when out of her sight.
Her slender neck her handsome waist
Her hair well curled her stays well laced
* * * * * *
* * * * * *
And O for the joys of a long winter night.
