Melville Castle
Willie's gane to Melville Castle,
Boots and spurs an' a'
Tae bid the ladies a' fareweel
Before he gaes awa
Willie's young and blythe and bonnie,
Lo'ed by ane and a'
O what will a' the lassies do
When Willie gaes awa'?

The first he met was Lady Grace
She led him thru' the ha'
And wi' a sad and sorry heart
She let the tear doon fa'
The next he met was Lady Kate
Said ne'er a word ava'
She thought that she was sure o' him,
Before he gaed awa'

The next to come was Lady Belle
"Gude troth, ye needna craw,
Maybe the lad will fancy me,
An' disappoint ye's a'."
Doun the stair tripped Lady Jean,
The flower amang them a'
"Oh! lasses, trust in Providence,
An' ye'll get husbands a'."

When on his horse he rade awa'
They gaither'd roond the door,
He gaily wav'd his bonnet blue,
They set up sic a roar!
Their cries, their tears brocht Willie back,
He kiss'd them ane an' a',
"Oh! lasses, bide till I come hame,
And then I'll wed ye a'."
