|1: Well I’ve cam tae a cross faar I met a wee lass,
Says, I, "Ma wee lass are ye willin tae go?"
She says, "Sir I will, for the share o a gill,
For it’s I’m the wee lassie that niver said no."
2: Sae we’ve gaen tae an alehouse and straicht up tae bed,
We niver did rise till the cock it did crow;
Then it’s gless efter gless I did merrily toss,
Wi the bonnie wee lassie that niver said no.
3: Then the landlady’s opened the door an cam in,
She’s lifted a gless and said wi a smile,
"Here’s a health tae the lad faas brocht in this lass,
Here’s a health tae the lass that can jig it in style."
4: "Go and bring us mair liquor," the lassie she said.
They’ve brocht in jugs and bottles a-new,
Then it’s glass efter glass I did merrily toss,
Till the lass and the landlady filled themsels fou.
5: "O look intae yer pocket," the landlady said,
"Ye owe me twa shillins tae pey for yer bed,
And for layin her doon ye owe me a croon,
O look intae yer pocket," the landlady said.
6: I’ve pit a pound in her pocket but five I’ve taen oot,
And I thocht tae myself I will bundle and go;
Well I bid her goodbye but she’s made nae reply,
The bonnie wee lassie that niver said no.
