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,      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,      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.
