O, dreary's the night wi' a crazy auld man!
III. He hums and he hankers, he frets and he cankers,
I never can please him, do a' that I can; He's peevish, and jealous of a' the young fellows,

And then his auld brass will buy me a new pan.

Lovely wee thing was thou mine; I wad wear thee in my bosom,

In that bonnie face of thine : And my
heart it stounds wi' anguish, Lest my wee thing be na mine.
In ae constellation shine;
Bonnie wee, 8c.
