Th' Young Lassie From Kilcaldy ©

Robbie Kennedy Bennett
Wolverhampton, England
2006

She worked oan a farm in 'er teenage years
Did she warm tae Collessie or greit some tears?
Were 'er clothes so soiled an' shoddy?
Only a Lassie wi' a young sweet face
Did she lang tae wear robes ay satin an' lace?
Th' young Lassie from Kilcaldy.
Whit colour was 'er eyes an' hair?
Was she mirk ur was she fair?
Did she dance wi' anybody?
Th' young Lassie from Kilcaldy.

When she went haem in 'er teenage years
Did she yearn fur Collessie an' greit some tears?
Did she leave behin' somebody?
The young Lassie from Kilcaldy.
Nae matter ay' er family name
An' who she courted an' then became
Whe she met an' married somebody,
The young Lassie from Kilcaldy.

Whit colour was 'er eyes an' hair?
Was she mirk ur was she fair?
Did she leave behin' somebody
Th' young Lassie from Kilcaldy
