My Highland Lassie, O

Rating: 4.8

NAE gentle dames, tho' e'er sae fair,
Shall ever be my muse's care:
Their titles a' arc empty show;
Gie me my Highland lassie, O.


Chorus.—Within the glen sae bushy, O,
Aboon the plain sae rashy, O,
I set me down wi' right guid will,
To sing my Highland lassie, O.

A nice rendering. 'Sae', however, means 'so' and does not need to be spelt out.
