Sweetest Girl, I'm so proud to know you.
Heart of fire and manners so mild.
I desire tonight to show you
'Round the town where I grew as a child.

So let's stroll down through Old Caledonia.
Climb the hill of Old Aberdeen.
By the Grand Riverside we'll share our mind.
And I'll return to this night in my dreams.

Dearest Man, how grandly you escort me.
Spin me 'round and 'round Edinburgh Square.
Leave a trail of stardust behind me.
So they'll know that we two were once there.

May we stay here a little while longer?
In this moment so rare and so fine.
Hand in hand we'll linger together.
Pure and pristine for all time.
