"Comin' Through the Rye"

-Robert Burns


Comin through the rye, poor body,
Comin through the rye,
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
a' weet=all wet
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
Should a body meet a body
Comin through the rye,
Should a body kiss a body,
Need a body cry?
O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
Should a body meet a body
Comin through the glen,
Should a body kiss a body,
Need the warld ken?
warld (world) - two syllables
ken=know

O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
Should a body meet a body
Comin through the grain,
Should a body kiss a body,
The thing's a body's ain.
ain=own
O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!




Comin through the rye, poor body,
Comin through the rye,
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
Should a body meet a body
Comin through the rye,
Should a body kiss a body,
Need a body cry?
O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
Should a body meet a body
Comin through the glen,
Should a body kiss a body,
Need the warld ken?
O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
Should a body meet a body
Comin through the grain,
Should a body kiss a body,
The thing's a body's ain.
O Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry.
She draggled all her petticoatie
Comin through the rye!
