Poem by Robert Burns


Her Daddie Fforbad


HER daddie forbad, her minnie forbad;
  Forbidden she wadna be:
She wadna trowt the browst she brewd
  Wad taste sae bitterlie.
    The lang lad they ca Jumpin John
      Beguiled the bonnie lassie,
    The lang lad they ca Jumpin John
      Beguiled the bonnie lassie.

A cow and a cauf a yowe and a hauf,
  And thretty gude shillins and three;
A verra gude tocher, a cotter-mans dochter,
  The lass with the bonnie black ee.
    The lang lad they ca Jumpin John
      Beguiled the bonnie lassie,
    The lang lad they ca Jumpin John
      Beguiled the bonnie lassie.
