O my love’s like a red, red rose.
That's newly sprung in June;
O my love’s like a melody
That's sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I;
And I will love thee still, my Dear,
Till a'the seas gang dry.

Till all the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt with the sun:
I will love thee still, my Dear,
While the sands of life shall run.

And fare thee well my only Love!
And fare thee well a while!
And I will come again, my Love,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile!
