Johnnie wi' the Tye
Language: English 
Johnnie cam' to our toun,
To our toun, to our toun,
Johnnie cam' to our toun,
The body wi' the tye;
And O as he kittl'd me,
Kittl'd me, kittl'd me!
O, as he kittl'd me -
But I forgot to cry.

He gaed thro' the fields wi' me,
The fields wi' me, the fields wi' me,
He gaed thro' the fields wi' me
And doun among the rye;
Then O as he kittl'd me,
Kittl'd me, kittl'd me!
O, as he kittl'd me -
But I forgot to cry.
