I gaed to the market
As an honest women shou'd,
The knave followed me
As ye ken a knave wou'd.

cho: And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where'er he be
And I'll tell ye bye and bye
How the knave guided me.

I boucht a pint ale
The knave drank it a'

I cam my ways hame
The knave followed me

I gied him cheese and bread
The knave ate it a'

I gaed to my bed
The knave followed me.

I happen'd to be wi bairn
The knave ran awa.

I paid the nourice fee
The knave got the widdie.

final chorus:
And a knave has his knave tricks
Aye where e'er he be
And I've tamed ye now
How the knave guided me.
