The Dundee Lassie
I am a Dundee Lassie you can see
You'll aye find me cheerful
Nae metter whar I be
There's times I feel doonhearted
Often sad and ill
I'm a spinner intae Baxter's Mill.

My Mither de'ed when I was young
My father fell in France
I'd a liked tae be a teacher
But I never got the chance
I'll soon be getting merried
Tae a lad ca'd Sammy Hill
He's an iler intae Halley's Mill.

I'm chumming wi a lassie
They ca' her Jeenie Bain
She says she'll never marry
Her lad got killed in Spain
I affen hear her speak aboot
A place they call Teruel
She's a winder intae Craigie Mill.

Dundee Lassie sung by Janet Jones
