The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
511. Song—O aye my wife she dang me
 
 
Chorus—O aye my wife she dang me,
  An’ aft my wife she bang’d me,
If ye gie a woman a’ her will,
  Gude faith! she’ll soon o’er-gang ye.
 
ON peace an’ rest my mind was bent,        5
  And, fool I was! I married;
But never honest man’s intent
  Sane cursedly miscarried.
          O aye my wife, &c.
 
Some sairie comfort at the last,        10
  When a’ thir days are done, man,
My pains o’ hell on earth is past,
  I’m sure o’ bliss aboon, man,
          O aye my wife, &c.
