O my Luve is like a red, red rose

Thats newly sprung in June;

O my Luve is like the melody

Thats sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,

So deep in luve am I;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

Till a the seas gang dry.

Till a the seas gang dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt wi the sun;

I will love thee still, my dear,

While the sands o life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only luve!

And fare thee weel awhile!

And I will come again, my luve,

Though it were ten thousand mile.
