Traditional
  1. Ho boy! Hey boy! Come, come away boy!
    And bring me my longing desire:
    A lass that is neat, and can well do the feat
    When lusty young blood is on fire!
  2. Let her body be tall, And her waist be small,
    And her age not above eighteen:
    Let her care for no bed, but here let spread
    Her mantle upon the Green.
  3. Let her face be fair, And her breasts be bare,
    And a voice let her have that can warble;
    Let her belly be soft - but, to mount me aloft,
    Let her bounding buttocks be marble!
  4. Let her have a cherry lip, Where I nectar may sip,
    Let her eyes be as black as a sloe;
    Dangling locks I do love, so that those hang above
    Are the same with what grows below.
  5. Oh, such a bonny lass, May bring wonders to pass,
    And make me grow younger & younger:
    And whene'er we do part, she’ll be mad at the heart
    That I'm able to tarry no longer.
