Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
210. Song—Stay my Charmer
 
 
Tune—“An gille dubh ciar-dhubh.”
 
 
STAY my charmer, can you leave me?
Cruel, cruel to deceive me;
Well you know how much you grieve me;
      Cruel charmer, can you go!
      Cruel charmer, can you go!        5
 
By my love so ill-requited,
By the faith you fondly plighted,
By the pangs of lovers slighted,
      Do not, do not liave me so!
      Do not, do not leave me so!        10
