She's Fair and Fause

She's fair and fause that causes my smart,
   I lo'ed her meikle and lang;
She's broken her vow, she's broken my heart,
   And I may e'en gae hang.
A coof cam in wi' routh o' gear,
And I hae tint my dearest dear;
But woman is but warld's gear,
   Sae let the bonie lass gang.

Whae'er ye be that woman love,
   To this be never blind;
Nae ferlie 'tis tho' fickle she prove,
   A woman has't by kind;
O woman, lovely woman fair!
An angel form's faun to thy share;
'Twad been o'er meikle to gien thee mair,
   I mean an angel mind.
