Though we're called a people of serious mind,
'Tis often we dance, 'tis often we sing.

And bein' as human as all human-kind,
We arrren't superior to havin' a fling.
Verse 3
I'm taking the fling of a lifetime.
Verse 4
The fling of a husband and wife-time.
Verse 5
A-when I a-went rrromancing
I a-gave no thought to any wedding rrring.
Every bonnie lassie was
My highland fling.
Verse 6
A-no chance was I chancing
I' a-m not the man ya dangle on a strrring.
I was canny waitin' for the
Rrreal, rrreal thing.
Verse 7
A-though I danced each girrrl in a twist and a-twirrrl
Ney one would do.
And I went a-my way 'til the fatal day
In the fling I was flung a-with you.
Ohhhh
Verse 8
Now my hearrrt is prancin'
A-gay as a larrrk and happy as a king.
The yearrrs I'll weatherrr, in the hame on the heatherrr,
With my one and only highland fling.

I'm not wantin' any
I'm not wantin' any but you.

When I went a-dancin'
No special lad I was encourrragin'.
Every lackly laddie was

No glance I was glancin'.
Well, nothin' rrreally worth a-mentionin'.
Hopin', watchin', waitin' for the
Rrreal, rrreal thing.

Though they spoke me soft in the moonlit oft',
Ney one would do.
'Til it came to pass to this lucky lass
In a fling I was flung with you.
Oh...

Now my hearrrt is prrrancin'.
Nothin' about ya I'd be alterin'.
The yearrrs I'll weatherrr, in the hame on the heatherrr,
