  1. Gin a body meet a body, Comin' thro' the rye,
    Gin a body kiss a body, Need a body cry?
    Ilka lassie has her laddie,
    Nane, they say, hae I!
    Yet a' the lads they smile at me,
    When comin' thro' the rye.
  2. Gin a body Beet a body Comin' frae the toun,
    Gin a body greet a body, Need a body froun?
    Ilka lassie has her laddie,
    Nane, they say, ha'e I;
    Yet a' the lads they smile at me,
    When comin' thro' the rye.
  3. Amang the train there is a swain I dearly loe mysel',
    But whaur his hame or what his name I dinna care to tell.
    Ilka lassie has her laddie,
    Nane, they say, hae I;
    But a' the lads they lo'e me weel,
    And what the waur am I?
