It was in and through the window broads,
And all the tirliewirlies o'd
The sweetest kiss that e'er I got
Was from my dainty Davie.
cho: O, leeze me on your curly pow
Dainty Davie, dainty Davie,
Leeze me on your curly pow,
My aim dainty Davie.
It was down amang my daddy's pease,
And underneath the cherry trees;
O there he kist me as he pleased,
For he was mine ain dear Davie.
When he was chased by a dragoon,
Into my bed he was laid doon,
I thought him worthy o' his room,
And he's ay my dainty Davie.
Meet me on the Warlock Knowe,
Dainty Davie, Dainty Davie!
There I'll spend the day wi' you,
My ain dear Dainty Davie.
Now rosy May comes in wi' flowers
To deck her gay, green-spreading bowers;
And now comes in the happy hours
To wander wi my Davie.
The crystal waters round us fa'
The merry birds are lovers a',
The scented breezes round us blaw
A wandering wi my Davie.
When purple morning starts the hare
To steal upon her early fare,
Then thro the dews I will repair
To meet my faithfu' Davie.
When day, expiring in the west,
The curtain draws o Nature's rest,
I flee to his arms I loe the best:
And that's my ain dear Davie!
