461. Song—Charlie, he’s my Darling
 
 
’TWAS on a Monday morning,
  Right early in the year,
That Charlie came to our town,
  The young Chevalier.
 
Chorus.—An’ Charlie, he’s my darling,        5
  My darling, my darling,
Charlie, he’s my darling,
  The young Chevalier.
 
As he was walking up the street,
  The city for to view,        10
O there he spied a bonie lass
  The window looking through,
        An’ Charlie, &c.
 
Sae light’s he jumped up the stair,
  And tirl’d at the pin;        15
And wha sae ready as hersel’
  To let the laddie in.
        An’ Charlie, &c.
 
He set his Jenny on his knee,
  All in his Highland dress;        20
For brawly weel he ken’d the way
  To please a bonie lass.
        An’ Charlie, &c.
 
It’s up yon heathery mountain,
  An’ down yon scroggie glen,        25
We daur na gang a milking,
  For Charlie and his men,
        An’ Charlie, &c.
