I maun hae a wife, whatsoe'er she be|
An' she be a woman, that's enough for me.
Buy broom besoms! Wha will buy them noo?
Fine heather ringers, better never grew.
2. If that she be bonnie, I shall think her right,
3. O, an' she be young, how happy I shall be|
If that she be auld, the sooner she will dee.
4. If that she be fruitfu', O what joy is there!
5. If she like a drappie, she and I'll agree,
6. Be she green or greym be she black or fair
