"Tryst, the nicht wi' me croose Meg MacNee,
Fan, the meen an starns lowe ow'r the sea;
Oan, the waarm san we can lang be corrieneuchin,
An', tee gif ye weesh we cud ging han in han fyle paiddlin ?
Fess, yer sweem-shuit an' a beach-tool tee,
Fur, we micht neist ging an' sweem a wee;
Yon, micht mak us chitter as we daud an' wi lauchs splyter,
Bit, fair blythesome we cud be !"

Meg sangs ....

"Jock, the nicht I shair wull tryst wi' ye,
Fan, the meen an starns lowe ow'r the sea;
Me, I lik it fan ye spik o' corrieneuchin,
Bit, I'm nae sae shair I'll tak aff baith ma sheen fur paiddlin !
Fess, ma sweem-shuit an' a beach-tool tee ? !
I'd, be gowkit gif tae yon I'd gree;
Drap, yer daft-lik noshun pleiterin aboot the ocean,
Fan, ye cud be deltin me !"
