Lassie wi the yellow coatie
Will ye wed a moorland jockie
Lassie wi the yellow coatie
Will ye busk and gang wi me

I ha meal and milk in plenty
I ha kale and cakes fee dainty
I've a but an ben fee gentry
But I want a wife like thee

Tho my mallen be but small
Little gold I hae to show
I've a heart without a flaw
And I'd gie it all tae thee

Haste ye lassie tae my bossom
While the roses are in blossem
Time is precious, dinna lose them
Flo'ers will fade and so will ye
