lyrics

Ae fond kiss and then we sever
Ae fareweel and then forever
Deep in heartwrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans, I'll wage thee.

Who should say that fortune grieves him
While the star of hope she leaves him?
Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me
Dark despair around benights me.

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy
Naething could resist my Nancy
But tae see her was to love her
Love but her, and love forever.

Had we never loved sae kindly
Had we never loved sae blindly
Never met and never parted
We would ne'er be broken hearted.

Fare thee weel thou first and fairest
Fare the weel thou best and dearest
Thine be ilka joy and treasure
Peace, enjoyment, love and pleasure.

Ae fond kiss and then we sever
Ae fareweel, alas forever
Deep in heartwrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans, I'll wage thee.
