My bonny lass she smileth,
when she my heart beguileth,
Fa la la la la.

Smileless dear love, therefore,
And you shall love me more,
Fa la la la la.

When she her sweet eye turneth,
O how my heart it burneth!
Fa la la la la.

Dear love call in their light,
Or else you burn me quite,
Fa la la la la.
