Connie Dover - Mally Leigh Lyrics

Mally Leigh by Connie DoverWhen Mally Leigh came down the street, a wind blew
And flew the hat and cloak and all from bonny Mally

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

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

She wore two ribbons in her hair that flaunted
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

And when she reached the palace porch, there stood

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

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

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
Yet, Mallie did surpass them all with a red and rosie

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