333. Song—Lovely Polly Stewart
 
 
Chorus.—O lovely Polly Stewart,
  O charming Polly Stewart,
There’s ne’er a flower that blooms in May,
  That’s half so fair as thou art!
 
THE FLOWER it blaws, it fades, it fa’s,        5
  And art can ne’er renew it;
But worth and truth, eternal youth
  Will gie to Polly Stewart,
    O lovely Polly Stewart, &c.
 
May he whase arms shall fauld thy charms        10
  Possess a leal and true heart!
To him be given to ken the heaven
  He grasps in Polly Stewart!
    O lovely Polly Stewart, &c.
