Tune—“Whare’ll our guidman lie.”
 
 
O WHA my babie-clouts will buy?
O wha will tent me when I cry?
Wha will kiss me where I lie?

When I mount the creepie-chair,
Wha will sit beside me there?        10
Gie me Rob, I’ll seek nae mair,
  The rantin’ dog, the daddie o’t.
 
Wha will crack to me my lane?
Wha will mak me fidgin’ fain?
Wha will kiss me o’er again?        15
