                                        Now rosy May comes in wi' flowers,
                                        To deck her gay green birken bowers,
                                        And now come in my happy hours,
                                        To wander wi' my Davie.
                                        Chorus :
                                        Meet me on the warlock knowe,
                                        Dainty Davie, dainty Davie;
                                        There I'll spend the day wi' you,
                                        My ain dear dainty Davie.
                                        The crystal waters round us fa',
                                        The merry birds are lovers a',
                                        The scented breezes round us blaw,
                                        A-wandering wi' my Davie.
                                        When purple morning starts the hare,
                                        To steal upon her early fare,
                                        Then through the dews, I will repair,
                                        To meet my faithfu' Davie.
                                        When day, expiring in the west,
                                        The curtain draws o' Nature's rest,
                                        I'll flee to his arms I lo'e best,
                                        And that's my dainty Davie.
Footnote : A song collected by, and probably improved by, Robert Burns. Thanks to our National Bard many songs were safe-guarded for future generations to enjoy. Burns looked upon this as a service to the Scottish Nation and neither asked for, or received, 'deil a haet' for the many songs he supplied to George Thomson and James Johnson.
