The Knave


I gaed to the market
As an honest women shou'd,
The knave followed me
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where'er he be
And I'll tell ye bye and bye
How the knave guided me.

I boucht a pint ale
As an honest women shou'd,
The knave drank it a'
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where'er he be
And I'll tell ye bye and bye
How the knave guided me.

I cam my ways hame
As an honest women shou'd,
The knave followed me
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where'er he be
And I'll tell ye bye and bye
How the knave guided me.

I gied him cheese and bread
As an honest women shou'd,
The knave ate it a'
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where'er he be
And I'll tell ye bye and bye
How the knave guided me.

I gaed to my bed
As an honest women shou'd,
The knave followed me.
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where'er he be
And I'll tell ye bye and bye
How the knave guided me.

I happen'd to be wi bairn
As an honest women shou'd,
The knave ran awa.
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where'er he be
And I'll tell ye bye and bye
How the knave guided me.

I paid the nourice fee
The knave got the widdie.
As an honest women shou'd,
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where e'er he be
And I've tamed ye now
How the knave guided me.
