Chorus An’ Charlie, he’s my darling, My darling, my darling, Charlie, he’s my darling, The young Chevalier. ‘Twas on a Monday morning, Right early in the year, That Charlie came to our town, The young Chevalier. Chorus As he was walking up the street, The city for to view, He spied a bonnie lassie, The window looking thro’. Chorus Sae light he jumped up the stair, And tirl’d at the pin; And wha sae ready as hersel’ To let the laddie in. Chorus He took his Jenny on his knee, All in his Highland dress; For brawly well he kenn’d the way To please a bonnie lass. Chorus  It’s up yon heathery mountain, An’ doon yon scroggie glen, We daur na gang a milking, For Charlie and his men. Chorus (2X) an’: and chevalier: knight sae: so tir’d at the pin: rattled the latch wha: who hersel’: herself brawly: perfectly kenn’d: knew doon: down scroggie: abounding in stunted bushes daur: dare na: not gang: go
