Brief Introduction ....
Syne the East Neuk o Fife's
Whaur Ah've been alane fer aa ma life
Wi'oot a lass tae caa ma jo
Tho' Ah've huntit hich an low
Bit since Ah've fun ye
An ye seem tae fancy me
Ah howp ye'll bide-a-wee noo
Fyle Ah ettle-tae sing tae ye .......
Pictur in aa o' ma dreams
Yer braw-like leuks
Fair waakened me

Lassie ye micht'iv tee
Hid a dream-pictur in yer ee
O' a bauch laddie the likes o' me?
Let's sik a quait nook
Doon bi yon babblin brook
Amang the flooers
An mak aa oor dreamin come tae be?
Sae bonnie tae ony een
The day we'll be whusperin
'I luv ye'
It cud weel be verra seen?"
