1My heart is a-breaking, dear Tittie,
2Some counsel unto me come len';
3To anger them a' is a pity,
4But what will I do wi' Tam Glen?
5I'm thinking, wi' sic a braw fellow,
6In poortith I might mak a fen':
7What care I in riches to wallow,
8If I mauna marry Tam Glen?
9There's Lowrie, the laird o' Dumeller,
10"Guid-day to you,"--brute! he comes ben:
11He brags and he blaws o' his siller,
12But when will he dance like Tam Glen?
13My minnie does constantly deave me,
14And bids me beware o' young men;
15They flatter, she says, to deceive me;
16But wha can think sae o' Tam Glen?
17My daddie says, gin I'll forsake him,
18He'll gie me guid hunder marks ten:
19But, if it's ordain'd I maun take him,
20O wha will I get but Tam Glen?
21Yestreen at the valentines' dealing,
22My heart to my mou gied a sten:
23For thrice I drew ane without failing,
24And thrice it was written, "Tam Glen"!
25The last Halloween I was waukin
26My droukit sark-sleeve, as ye ken:
27His likeness cam up the house staukin,
28And the very gray breeks o' Tam Glen!
29Come counsel, dear Tittie, don't tarry;
30I'll gie ye my bonie black hen,
31Gif ye will advise me to marry
32The lad I lo'e dearly, Tam Glen.
