Music - Green Grow the Rashes O!


before Robert Burns
Green grow the rashes O,
Green grow the rashes O,
The feather-bed is no' sae saft
As a bed amang the rashes O.

Refrain:
Green grow the rashes O,
Green grow the rashes O,
The feather-bed is no sae saft
As a bed amang the rashes O.

We're a' dry wi' drinkin' o't,
We're a' dry wi' drinkin' o't,
The parson kissed the fiddler's wife
And he couldna preach for thinkin' o't.
Refrain:

The down bed, the feather-bed,
The bed amang the rashes O;
Yet a' the beds is no' sae saft
As the bellies o' the lasses O.
Refrain:

Robert Burns
There's naught but care on ev'ry han',
In ev'ry hour that passes, O!
What signifies the life o' man,
An' 'twere na for the lasses O?

Refrain:
Green grow the rashes O!
Green grow the rashes O!
The sweetest hour that e'er I spent
Were spent among the lasses O!

Give me a cannie hour at e'en
My arms about my dearie, O!
An warldly cares and warldly men,
May a' gae tápsalteerie, O!
Refrain:

For you sae douce wha sneer at this,
Ye're not but senseless asses, O!
The wisest man the warld e'er saw,
He dearly loved the lasses, O!
Refrain:

Auld nature swears the lovely dears,
Her noblest word she classes; O!
Her 'prentice han' she tried on man,
An' then she made the lasses, O!
Refrain:
