      Her daddie forbad, her minnie forbad      Forbidden she wadna be:      She wadna trow't the browst she brew'd,      Wad taste sae bitterlie.       Chorus.-The lang lad they ca'Jumpin John      Beguil'd the bonie lassie,      The lang lad they ca'Jumpin John      Beguil'd the bonie lassie.       A cow and a cauf, a yowe and a hauf,      And thretty gude shillin's and three;      A vera gude tocher, a cotter-man's dochter,      The lass wi' the bonie black e'e.      The lang lad, &c.
