1-32 Since 3s do nothing throughout, this could be danced as a 2-couple repeat, 1s finishing below 2s on bar 4.
21-24 1s must lead up quickly so that 2s have time to dance in ready for the poussette which follows.
My love was once a bonnie lad,
He was the flower of a' his kin,
The absence of his bonnie face
Has rent my tender heart in twain.
I day or night find no delight;
In silent tears I still complain;
And exclaim 'gainst those my rival foes,
That ha'e ta'en from me my darling swain.
