A-Gathering Nuts

There was a lass and a bonnie lass,
A-gathering nuts did gang,
And she pulled them high, and she pulled them low,
And she pulled them where they hang.

'Til tired at length, she laid her doon,
And slept the woods among,
When by there came three lusty lads,
Three lusty lads and strong.

Oh the first did kiss her rosy lips,
He thought is wasna wrong.
The second unloosed her bodice fair,
That was sewed with silk along.

And what the third did to the lass,
Is no put in this song.
But the lassie wakened with a fright,
And she says I've slept too long.


(Robert Burns)
