1.  Oh, my luve's like a red, red rose       3.  Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear, 
  That's newly sprung in June:                  And the rocks melt wi' the sun,
Oh, my luve's like the melodie               I will luve thee still, my dear,  
  That's sweetly played in tune.                While the sands o' life shall run.

2.  Oh, as fair art thou, my bonnie lass,    4.  And fare thee weel, my only luve!
  So deep in luve am I;                         And fare thee weel a while! 
And I will luve you still my dear,           And I will come again, my dear
  Till a' the seas gang dry.                    Though it were ten thousand mile

John Anderson, my jo, John,
  When we were first acquent,
Your locks were like the raven,
  Your bonnie brow was brent
But now your brow is beld, John,
  Your locks are like the snaw;
But blessings on your frosty pow,
   John Anderson, my jo.

John Anderson, my jo, John,
  We clamb the hill thegither;
And monie a canty day, John,
  We've had wi' ane anither:
Now we maun totter doun, John,
  But hand in hand we'll go,
And sleep thegither at the foot,
  John Anderson, my jo.
