lyrics

The first time that I saw my love, it was at a ball
I looked at her, I gazed at her, far above them all
But aye she looked on me with scorn and disdain
And the bonny wee lassie's answer was to no come again
Was to no come again
And the bonny wee lassie's answer was to no come again

The next time that I saw my love, it was at a wake
I looked at her, I gazed at her, I thought my heart would break
But aye she looked on me with scorn and disdain
And the bonnie wee lassie's answer was to no come again
Was to no come again
And the bonny wee lassie's answer was to not come again

It being six months after, a little or above
When Cupid shot his arrow and he's wounded my true love
He's wounded her severely, which caused her to complain
And she wrote to me a letter sayin'
"You might come again" Sayin' "You might come again"
And she wrote to me a letter, sayin' "You might come again"

Well, I wrote her back an answer for to let her know
While life was in my body t'was there I wouldn’ aye go
While life was in my body and while it does remain
I will aye mind the girl who said don't come again
Who said don't come again
I will aye mind the girl who said don't come again

So come all you pretty young girls a warning take by me
Never slight a young man wherever you may be
For if you do you're sure to rue and cause you to complain
And you'll aye rue the day that you said,
"Don't come again" You said "Don't come again"
And you'll aye rue the day that you said, "Don't come again"
