Tibbie Fowler o' the glen, there's ower mony wooin' at her
Tibbie Fowler o' the glen, there's ower mony wooin' at her

Ten cam' east and ten cam' west and ten cam' sailin' ower the water
Twa cam' doon yon lang dyke side, there's ower mony wooin' at her

Wooin' at her, pu'in at her
Wantin' her, canna get her
Silly elf, it's for her pelf
A' the lads are wooin' at her

Seven but and seven ben, and seven in the pantry wi' her
Twenty heid aroon' the door, there's ower mony wooin' at her

She's got pendles in her lugs, aye cockle shells would set her better
High-heeled sheen wi' siller tags and a' the lads are wooin' at her

Wooin' at her, pu'in at her
Wantin' her, canna get her
Silly elf, it's for her pelf
A' the lads are wooin' at her

Be a lassie 'ere sae black o' gin she hid the penny siller
Set her upon Tintock Tap, the wind will blaw a minnie 'til her

Be a lassie 'ere sae fair o' gin she hid the penny siller
A flea would fell her in the air afore a man was even 'til her

Wooin' at her, pu'in at her
Wantin' her, canna get her
Silly elf, it's for her pelf
A' the lads are wooin' at her

Tibbie Fowler o' the glen, there's ower mony wooin' at her
Tibbie Fowler o' the glen, there's ower mony wooin' at her

Wooin' at her, pu'in at her
Wantin' her, canna get her
Silly elf, it's for her pelf
A' the lads are wooin' at her
