Ha'way wi' Me

Wheor flooers nod tha femmer heeds
'n' porfume breezes 's th' pass,
t' set the fields a-dancing wild
like watter waves insteed i' grass.

That's wheor w'd gan me bonny lass,
away wheor worries cannat foller,
(for theor the winds blaa ower free)
and thoughts can torn t' one another.

Fo' ye aa see 's femmer te,
(though strang iv heart purport t' be)
'n' aa wad like t' howld ye so
th't ye might let yer tears flow.

The bords 'n' flooers th't y' love
'd be arund w' 's w'd lie.
Aa'd soothe yer achin' from within,
t' blackbords' sangs, 'n' cuckoos' cries.

An' then w'd sit 'n' taak i' dreams
iv rivas crossed, 'n' hills w'd climb,
iv bein' free t' please wa'sells
wi' nee clock ticking oot the time.

So noo ha'way wi' me the day,
alang the road th't leads away
fr'm aal the things th't love c'n cure
wi' help fr'm Flora's gift iv flooers.
