Robert Burns, 1788

Her daddie forbad, her minnie forbad
Forbidden she wadna be:
She wadna trow't the browst she brew'd,
Wad taste sae bitterlie.
Chorus:
|: The lang lad they ca'Jumpin John
Beguil'd the bonie lassie. :|

2. A cow and a cauf, a yowe and a hauf,
And thretty gude shillin's and three;
A vera gude tocher, a cotter-man's dochter,
The lass wi' the bonie black e'e.
Chorus:
