​The Shearin's No' For You

This song is by Ed Miller.

Words and music traditional

Oh the shearin's no for you, my bonnie lassie oh
Oh the shearin's no for you, my bonnie lassie oh,
Oh the shearin's no for you, for yer back it winna boo,
And yer belly's rowan fu' my bonnie lassie oh.

Dae ye mind the banks o' Ayr, my bonnie lassie oh,
Dae ye mind the banks o' Ayr, my bonnie lassie oh,
Dae ye mind the banks o' Ayr, where my heart ye did ensnare,
And yer love ye did declare, my bonnie lassie oh.

Tak the ribbons frae yer hair, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the ribbons frae yer hair, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the ribbons frae yer hair, and let doon yer ringlets fair,
Ye've nocht no but doul an' care, my bonnie lassie oh.

Tak the buckles frae yer shin, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the buckles frae yer shin, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the buckles frae yer shin, for ye've wed an unco loon
And yer dancin days are done, my bonnie lassie oh,
