Lyrics - Marry-arry-me
As I came in by Kelvinhaugh, the sun it fairly shone,
It made to bloom the pretty flowers, in the woods o' Kelvinhaugh,
I lay down against a tree to rest my weary legs,
When this bonnie lass she came over, and she did say to me.
Marry arry arry ah, marry arry me,
Marry arry arry ah, marry arry me.
I said sit down my bonnie lass, and keep me company,
I've a mind to slumber, a while upon the grass,
One so beautiful,
I’ve never seen before,
Give your heart to me, then I will ask of you.
The sun it flickered though the leaves, she looked into my soul,
Tantalizingly teasing me, stole me with her eyes,
The flowers danced in gentle winds, her hair came down on me,
Sweetest flower among the trees, made my heart to sing.
Picking up her basket, we sauntered to the Clyde,
Washing and scrubbing, our clothes by the riverside,
bonnie bleacher lassie, and soon we'll be three,
Living by the Kelvinhaugh, contented we will be.
