First Lines YOu bonny boon blades that are company keepers, / Come hither and listen unto this my Song,
Refrain For surely I thought it would never be day. / Until I had brought my Estate to decay. [stanzas 1-3,5,8] It made me to sigh and am ready to cry, / O what an ill Husband and Drunkard was I; [stanzas 9-12; with variations]
