lyrics

First when I came to the town

The called me proud and saucy

Now they've changed my name

Called me the leaboy's lassie



First when I came to the town

They called me young and bonny

Now they've changed my name

Called me the leaboy's honey



I'll dye my petticoats red

And face them with the yellow

I'll tell the dyster lad

That the leaboy I'm tae follow



Over hills and dales

And over dikes and ditches

So well I like the lad

Who wears the moleskin britches



Feather beds are fine

And painted rooms are bonny

But I would leave them all

To jog along with Johnny



Oh, for Saturday night

It's I that'll see my dearie

He'll come whistling in

When I am tired and weary
