522. Song—The Cardin o’t, the Spinning o’t
 
 
I COFT a stane o’ haslock woo’,
  To mak a wab to Johnie o’t;
For Johnie is my only jo,
  I loe him best of onie yet.
 
Chorus.—The cardin’ o’t, the spinnin’ o’t,        5
  The warpin’ o’t, the winnin’ o’t;
When ilka ell cost me a groat,
  The tailor staw the lynin’ o’t.
 
For tho’ his locks be lyart grey,
  And tho’ his brow be beld aboon,        10
Yet I hae seen him on a day,
  The pride of a’ the parishen.
              The cardin o’t, &c.
