Bonny Wee Thing
(Robert Burns)

Bonie wee thing, cannie wee thing,
   Lovely wee thing, wert thou mine,
I wad wear thee in my bosom
   Lest my jewel it should tine.

Wishfully I look and languish
    In that bonie face o thine,
And my heart it stounds wi anguish,
   Lest my wee thing be na mine.

Wit and Grace and Love and Beauty
    In ae constellation shine;
To adore thee is my duty
    Goddess o this soul o mine.

     Tune: Bonnie Wee Thing (357)
