She's fair and fause
written in 1792
She's fair and fause that causes my smart, I lo'ed her meikle and lang; She's broken her vow, she's broken my heart, And I may e'en gae hang. A coof cam in wi' routh o' gear, And I hae tint my dearest dear; But woman is but warld's gear, Sae let the bonie lass gang. Whae'er ye be that woman love, To this be never blind; Nae ferlie 'tis tho' fickle she prove, A woman has't by kind; O woman, lovely woman fair! An angel form's faun to thy share; 'Twad been o'er meikle to gien thee mair, I mean an angel mind.
