Aye Waukin O

  • (Robert Burns)

    Aye waukin O
    Waukin I am weary
    Sleep I can get nane
    For thinkin o' my dearie
    Aye waukin O

    Simmer's a pleasant time
    Trees of every colour
    The water rins o'er the heugh
    And I long for my true lover

    Lanely night comes on
    A' the lave are sleepin'
    I think on my bonnie lass
    And I bleer my e'en wi' greetin'

    When I sleep I dream
    When I wake I'm eerie
    Sleep I can get nane
    For thinkin o' my dearie

    (as sung by The McCalmans)

  • [1993:] I'm not sure if this is a Burns song although many people would associate him with it. [There] are several others with similar verses, a sort of traditional 'pick and mix'. (Notes Heather Heywood, 'By Yon Castle Wa')
