MS: 'Ay Waukin O'

Ay Waukin O

Simmer's a' pleasant time,
Flowers of every colour;
The water rins o'er the heugh,
And I long for my true lover!
Chorus
Ay waukin, Oh
Waukin still and weary:
Sleep I can get nane,
For thinking on my Dearie. --

When I sleep I dream,
When I wauk I'm irie;
Sleep I can get nane
For thinking on my Dearie. --
Ay waukin & c.

Lanily night comes on,
A' the lave are sleepin:
I think on my bonie lad,
And I bleer my een wi' greetin. --
Ay waukin & c.
