How Can I Keep My Maidenhead?
Anonymous
 
(18th Century)

HOW can I keep my maidenhead,
  My maidenhead, my maidenhead,
How can I keep my maidenhead,
  Among sae mony men, O?
 
The Captain bad a guinea for’t,        5
  A guinea for’t, a guinea for’t;
The Captain bad a guinea for’t,
  The Colonel he bad ten, O.
 
But I’ll do as my minnie did,
  My minnie did, my minnie did;        10
But I’ll do as my minnie did,
  For siller I’ll hae nane, O.
 
I’ll gie it to a bonnie lad,
  A bonnie lad, a bonnie lad;
I’ll gie it to a bonnie lad,        15
  For just as good again, O.
