Mally Leigh Lyrics

Mally Leigh by Uniform Motion  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Mally Leigh When Mally Leigh came down the street, a wind blew
Mightily
And flew the hat and cloak and all from bonny Mally
Leigh

And down along the Canongate were lads of all degree
Who sighed to see the comely shape of bonny Mally Leigh

Chorus
And we're all gone East and West, we're all gone, aye,
Ajee
We're all gone East and West, a-courting Mally Leigh

She wore two ribbons in her hair that flaunted
Gallantly
And ribbons at the back and breast of bonny Mally Leigh

And with every bob her ribbons made, each lad thought,
That's for me
But ne'er a one was in the thoughts of bonny Mally
Leigh

And when she reached the palace porch, there stood

Lairdies three
And each one turned him round about to glance on Mally
Leigh

The dance went through the palace hall, a comely sight
To see
And none was there so bright and fair as bonny Mally
Leigh

The Prince came out from among them all with garters at
His knee
And danced a stately minuet with bonny Mally Leigh

Though some wore jewels in their hair that shown so
Brilliantly
Yet, Mallie did surpass them all with a red and rosie
Cheek

But Hieland Brodie floored them all with a proud and
Glancing eye
He's won for aye the heart and hand of bonny Mally
Leigh
