Did you ever see a lassie,
A lassie,
A lassie?
Did you ever see a lassie
Go this way and that?
Go this way and that way,
And that way and this way,
Did you ever see a lassie
Go this way and that?

Did you ever see a laddie,
A laddie,
A laddie?
Did you ever see a laddie
Go this way and that?
Go this way and that way,
And that way and this way,
Did you ever see a laddie
Go this way and that?
