Robert Burns, from Merry Muses of Caledonia, 1800 edition
Hoo can I keep my maidenheid,
My maidenheid, my maideheid;
Hoo can I keep my maidenheid
Amang sae mony men, O.
2. The captain bad a guinea for't,
3. But I'll do as my minnie did,
4. I'll gie it tae a bonnie lad;|
A bonnie lad, a bonnie lad;
I'll gie it tae a bonnie lad,
For just as gude again, O.
5. An auld moulie maidenheid,
6. The stretchin' o't, the strivin' o't,
7. Hoo can I keep my maidenheid,
