A Red, Red Rose
by Robert Burns (1759-1796)

My love is like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June.
My love is like the melodie,
That's sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I,
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till all the seas gang dry.

Till all the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt with the sun!
And I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands of life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my love,
Though it were ten thousand mile!
