Ae fond kiss

Ae fond kiss and then we sever
ae fareweel and then forever
deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee;

Who shall say that fortune grieves him
while the star of hope she leaves him me,
nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me
dark despair aroond benights me.

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy
naething could resist my Nancy
but to see her was to love her
love but her and love forever;

Had we never loo'ed sae kindly
had we ne'er loo'ed sae blindly
never met -- or never pairted
we had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare thee weel thou first and fairest
fare thee weel thou best and dearest
thine be ilka joy and treasure
peace, enjoyment, love and pleasure;

Ae fond kiss and then we sever
ae fareweel, alas! for ever
deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.
