Twa recruiting' sairgeants cam free the
Black Watch
To markets and fairs some recruits for
to catch;
An' a' that they listed was forty an' twa;
So list bonnie laddie, an' come awa'.

It is over the mountains, and over the
Through Giberalter to France and Spain,
Get a feather tae your bonnet and a
kilt abeen your kne
An' list bonnie laddie an' come a.a'
wi' me.

Oh, laddie, ye dinna ken the danger that
ye're in
If your horses wis to fleg an' your ousen
wis to rin.
This greedy auld fairer winna pey your
So list bonnie laddie an' come awa wi' ne.

It is intae the barn an' oot o' the byre,
This auld fairer thinks ye'll never tire,
For it's a slavery job of low degree,
So list bonnie laddie an' come awa wi' me.

Wi' your tatty poorin's an' your meal an'
Your soor sowen soorings an' your ill-
brewed ale,
Wi' your buttermilk and .hey an' your
breid fired raw
So list bonnie laddie an' come iwa.

Oh, laddie if ye've got a sweetheart an'
Ye'll easily get rid o' that ill-spun
Twa rattles o' the drum an' that'll pey
it a'
So list bonnie laddie an' come awa.
