33. Song—'Indeed will I' quo' Findlay

 “WHA is that at my bower-door?”
 “O wha is it but Findlay!”
“Then gae your gate, ye’se nae be here:”
 “Indeed maun I,” quo’ Findlay;
“What mak’ ye, sae like a thief?”
 “O come and see,” quo’ Findlay;
“Before the morn ye’ll work mischief:”
 “Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.
“Gif I rise and let you in”— “Let me in,” quo’ Findlay; “Ye’ll keep me waukin wi’ your din;” “Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay; “In my bower if ye should stay”— “Let me stay,” quo’ Findlay; “I fear ye’ll bide till break o’ day;” “Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.
“Here this night if ye remain”— “I’ll remain,” quo’ Findlay; “I dread ye’ll learn the gate again;” “Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.
“What may pass within this bower”— “Let it pass,” quo’ Findlay; “Ye maun conceal till your last hour:” “Indeed will I,” quo’ Findlay.
