VIII. Wedded Love
My Wife ’s a Winsome Wee Thing
Robert Burns (1759–1796)
 
SHE is a winsome wee thing,
She is a handsome wee thing,
She is a bonnie wee thing,
This sweet wee wife o’ mine.
 
I never saw a fairer,        5
I never lo’ed a dearer,
And neist my heart I ’ll wear her,
For fear my jewel tine.
 
She is a winsome wee thing,
She is a handsome wee thing,        10
She is a bonnie wee thing,
This sweet wife o’ mine.
 
The warld’s wrack we share o’t,
The wrastle and the care o’t:
Wi’ her I ’ll blythely bear it,        15
And think my lot divine.
