My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose

Words by Robert Burns

O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve's the melodie
That's sweetly play'd in

As fair art , my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang :

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my ,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun:
I will luve thee still, my dear, 
While the sands o’ life shall

And thee weel, my only Luve
And fare thee weel, a while!
And I will come again, my luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand .
