X:1 T:Ae Fond Kiss C:Trad O:Scotland N:Love Song K: W:1 Ae fond kiss and then we sever! W:Ae farewell and then for ever! W:Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee, W:Warring cries and groans I'll wage thee. W: W:2 Who shall say that fortune grieves him, W:While the star of hope she leaves him ? W:Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me, W:Dark despair around benights me. W: W:3 I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy: W:Naething could resist my Nancy! W:Just to see her is to love her, W:Love but her, and love for ever. W: W:4 Had we never lov'd sae kindly, W:Had we never lov'd sae blindly, W:Never met- or never parted, W:We had ne'er been broken-hearted. W: W:5 Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest! W:Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest! W:Thine be e'er more joy and treasure, W:Peace, contentment, love and pleasure. W: W:6 Ae fond kiss and then we sever! W:Ae farewell and then for ever! W:Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee, W:Warring cries and groans I'll wage thee. % % % % %
