Galla water
Language: English 
Braw, braw lads of Galla water; 
Oh! braw lads o' Galla water; 
I'll kilt my coats aboon my knee,
And follow my love through the water.

Sae fair her hair, sae brent her brow, 
Sae bonny blue her een, my dearie; 
Sae white her teeth, sae sweet her mou',
The mair I kiss, she's ay my dearie.

Kilt = tuck up (one's clothes or skirt)
Aboon = above;
Brent = smooth, unwrinkled
