33. Song-"Indeed will I," quo' Findlay

“WHA is that at my bower-door?”
“O wha is it but Findlay!”
“Then gae your gate, ye’se nae be here:”
“Indeed maun I,” quo’ Findlay;
“What mak’ ye, sae like a thief?”
“O come and see,” quo’ Findlay;
“Before the morn ye’ll work mischief:”
“Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.

“Gif I rise and let you in”-
“Let me in,” quo’ Findlay;
“Ye’ll keep me waukin wi’ your din;”
“Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay;
“In my bower if ye should stay”-
“Let me stay,” quo’ Findlay;
“I fear ye’ll bide till break o’ day;”
“Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.

“Here this night if ye remain”-
“I’ll remain,” quo’ Findlay;
“I dread ye’ll learn the gate again;”
“Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.
“What may pass within this bower”-
“Let it pass,” quo’ Findlay;
“Ye maun conceal till your last hour:”
“Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.
