GAT ye me, O gat ye me,
  O gat ye me wi’ naething?
Rock an reel, and spinning wheel,
  A mickle quarter basin:
Bye attour my Gutcher has        5
  A heich house and a laich ane,
A’ forbye my bonie sel,
  The toss o’ Ecclefechan.
 
O haud your tongue now, Lucky Lang,
  O haud your tongue and jauner        10
I held the gate till you I met,
  Syne I began to wander:
I tint my whistle and my sang,
  I tint my peace and pleasure;
But your green graff, now Lucky Lang,        15
  Wad airt me to my treasure.
