The Taylor

The Taylor he cam here to sew, And weel he kend the way to woo, For ay he pree'd the lassie's mou As he gaed but and ben O. For weel he kend the way O The way O, the way O For weel he kend the way O The lassie's heart to win O. The Taylor rase and sheuk his duds, The flaes they flew awa in cluds, And them that stay'd gat fearfu' thuds, The Taylor prov'd a man O. For now it was the gloamin, The gloamin, the gloamin, For now it was the gloamin When a' to rest are gaun O.
