MY WIFE'S A WINSOME WEE THING
Robert Burns
Air-"My Wife's a Wanton Wee Thing."

Chorus.-She is a winsome wee thing,
She is a handsome wee thing,
She is a lo'esome wee thing,
This dear wee wife o' mine.

I never saw a fairer,
I never lo'ed a dearer,
And neist my heart I'll wear her,
For fear my jewel tine,
She is a winsome, &c.

The warld's wrack we share o't;
The warstle and the care o't;
Wi' her I'll blythely bear it,
And think my lot divine.
She is a winsome, &c.


Footnote : A charming song from Robert Burns to hansel 2004.Burns sent the song, which improved upon an older old-fashioned ditty, to George Thomson on 8 November 1792.
