Lyrics

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever!
Ae farewel, and then, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!

Who shall say that Fortune grieves her
While the star of hope she leaves her?
Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me,
Dark despair around benights me.

Had we never loved sae kindly,
Had we never loved sae blindly,
Never met or never parted,
We would ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest!
Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest!
Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
Peace, enjoyment, love, and pleasure!

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever!
Ae farewel, and then, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!
