Poem by Robert Burns


* * *


O guid ale comes, and guid ale goes,
Guid ale gars me sell my hose,
Sell my hose, and pawn my shoon;
Guid ale keeps my heart aboon.

I had sax owsen in a pleugh,
And they drew a weel eneugh,
I selld them a just ane by ane;
Guid ale keeps the heart aboon.

Guid ale hauds me bare and busy,
Gars me moop wi the servant hizzie,
Stand i the stool when I hae done;
Guid ale keeps the heart aboon.

1795
