My Wife's A Winsome Wee Thing By Robert Burns

Chorus
She is a winsome wee thing,
She is a handsome wee thing,
She is a bonnie wee thing,
This dear wee wife o' mine!

I never saw a fairer,
I never loo'd a dearer;
And neist my heart I'll wear her,
For fear my jewel tine.

Chorus
She is a winsome wee thing,
She is a handsome wee thing,
She is a bonnie wee thing,
This dear wee wife o' mine.

The warld's wrack we share o't,
The warstle and the care o't;
Wi' her I'll blythely bear it,
And think my lot divine.
