Comin thro' the Rye

[First Setting]
Comin thro’ the rye, poor body,
    Comin thro’ the rye,
She draigl’t a’ her petticoatie
    Comin thro’ the rye.
 
[CHORUS.]
         Oh Jenny 's a’ weet poor body
              Jenny 's seldom dry,
         She draigl’t a’ her petticoatie
              Comin thro’ the rye.
 
Gin a body meet a body
    Comin thro’ the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body —
    Need a body cry.
         Oh Jenny 's a’ weet, &c.
 
Gin a body meet a body
    Comin thro’ the glen;
Gin a body kiss a body —
    Need the warld ken!
         Oh Jenny 's a’ weet, &c.
 
[Second Setting]
Gin a body meet a body, comin thro’ the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body, need a body cry;
Ilka body has a body, ne’er a ane hae I;
But a’ the lads they loe me, and what the waur am I.
 
Gin a body meet a body, comin frae the well,
Gin a body kiss a body, need a body tell;
Ilka body has a body, ne’er a ane hae I,
But a the lads they loe me, and what the waur am I.
 
Gin a body meet a body, comin frae the town,
Gin a body kiss a body, need a body gloom;
Ilka Jenny has her Jockey, ne’er a ane hae I,
But a’ the lads they loe me, and what the waur am I.
