The Auld Hoose

  1. Oh! the auld hoose, the auld hoose,
    What tho' the rooms were wee,
    Oh, kind hearts were dwelling there,
    And bairnies fu' 0' glee.
    And wild rose and the jassamine
    Still hang upon the wa
    Hoo mony cherished memories
    Do they sweet flow 'rs reca'.

  2. Oh, the auld Laird, the auld Laird
    Sae canty, kind and crouse.
    Hoo mony did he welcome there,
    His ain wee dear auld hoose.
    And the leddy, too, sae genty,
    There shelter'd Scoltand's heir,
    An' clipt a lock wi' her ain han'
    Frae his long yellow hair

  3. The mavis still doth sweetly sing,
    The bluebells sweetly blaw.
    The bonnie Earn's clear, winding still
    But the auld hoose is awa'.
    The auld hoose, the auld hoose
    Deserted tho' ye be,
    There ne'er can be a new hoose,
    Will seem sae fair to me.

  4. Still flourishing the auld pear tree
    The bairnies liked to see.
    And oh hoo often did they speir
    When ripe they a' wad be?
    The voices sweet, the wee bit feet
    Aye runnin' here and there.
    The merry shouts oh, whiles we greet
    To think we'll hear nae mair.
