Sweet Tibbie Dunbar

Language: Scottish (Scots)

O, wilt thou go wi' me, sweet Tibbie Dunbar?
O, wilt thou go wi' me, sweet Tibbie Dunbar?
Wilt thou ride on a horse, or be drawn in a car,
Or walk by my side, O sweet Tibbie Dunbar?

I care na thy daddie, his lands and his money;
I care na thy kin, sae high and sae lordly;
But say that thou'lt hae me for better or waur,
And come in thy coatie, sweet Tibbie Dunbar.

O wullt mi ni mit hebbn, lütt Anna Kathrin?
O wullt mi ni mit hebbn, lütt Anna Kathrin?
Du kunnst je wul fahren, du kunnst je wul ridn,
Oder wullt an min Sit gan, lütt Anna Kathrin?

Wat schert mi din Vader, sin Hus un sin Feld!
Wat schert mi din Mellersch, er Stolt un er Geld!
Segg blot, ik schall mitgan, segg blot, du büst min,
Un kumm inn Linnwullnrock, lütt Anna Kathrin!
