O gin I had her
written in 1786
O gin I had her, Ay gin I had her, O gin I had her, Black altho' she be. I wad lay her bale, I'd gar her spew her kail; She ne'er soud keep a mail, Till she dandl'd it on her knee. She says, I am light To manage matters right, That I've nae might or weight To fill a lassie's ee; But wad she tak a yokin', I wad put a c-k in; A quarter o't to flocken, I wad frankly gie.
