Traditional
  1. Ae fond kiss and then we sever!
    Ae farewell and then for ever!
    Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
    Warring cries and groans I'll wage thee.
  2. Who shall say that fortune grieves him,
    While the star of hope she leaves him ?
    Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me,
    Dark despair around benights me.
  3. I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy:
    Naething could resist my Nancy!
    Just to see her is to love her,
    Love but her, and love for ever.
  4. Had we never lov'd sae kindly,
    Had we never lov'd sae blindly,
    Never met- or never parted,
    We had ne'er been broken-hearted.
  5. Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest!
    Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest!
    Thine be e'er more joy and treasure,
    Peace, contentment, love and pleasure.
  6. Ae fond kiss and then we sever!
    Ae farewell and then for ever!
    Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
    Warring cries and groans I'll wage thee.
