Beautiful Rothesay

 Beautiful Rothesay, your scenery is most grand,
You cannot be surpassed in fair Scotland.
Tis healthy for holiday makers, to go there, For the benefit of their health, by inhaling the pure air And to hear the innocent birds, on a fine Summer day, Carolling their sweet songs, so lively and gay, Therefore, holiday makers, be advised by me, And visit beautiful Rothesay, by the side of the Sea.
Then sweet Jessie, let us go, To Scotland's garden of Eden O! And spend the lovely Summer day, In the beautiful village of Rothesay.
There you can see the ships, passing to and fro, Which will drive away dull care, and woe, And, the heavens breath smells wooingly there, Therefore, let's away dear Jessie, to inhale the balmy air.
The mansions, there, are most beautiful to be seen, Likewise the trees, and shrubberies, green.
Therefore, we will feel happy and gay, Walking hand in hand, together the live long day.
Along the beautiful walks with our hearts fu' cheerie, My dear love! Until we grow weary.
Then, return home at night, with our spirits light and gay, After viewing the beautiful scenery of Rothesay.
