Abstract

A collection of songs and ballads, mostly on the theme of love. The first tells the happy story of two young lovers who run off to be married secretly at the fair, while the second is a poem by Robert Burns on the beauty of his love. The third is a humorous story of the relationship between a rough spendthrift and his nagging mistress, ending with him getting a mouthful of dung and the ending of their relationship before they get around to getting married. The last is a short drinking song.
