Dance Information

Also see the dance My Love She's But A Lassie Yet (RSCDS Book 9) from RSCDS Book 9.

The title of this dance, My Love She's But A Lassie Yet, comes from My Love She's But A Lassie Yet - Poem written by Robert Burns in 1798 and sung to the tune Lady Bandinscoth's Reel.

Chorus
My love, she's but a lassie yet,
My love, she's but a lassie yet,
I'll let her stand a year or twa,
She'll no be half sae saucy yet.

This is an old song, which received some touches from Burns for Johnson's Museum.
