Lyrics (15th century English)
In secreit place, this hindir nicht,
In the night just gone, in a secret place,
I hard ane beirne say till ane bricht,
I overheard a brave man tell someone fair,
'My huny, my hart, my heill,
'My honey-sweet, my heart, my health,
I have bene lang your luifar leill,
Long I have been your loyal lover,
This hindir nicht,
This last night,
Ye brek my hart, my bony ane..
You break my heart, my bonny one..
