Poem by Robert Burns


Count The Lawin


GANE is the day, and mirks the night,
But well neer stray for faut o light,
For ale and brandys stars and moon,
And bluid-red wines the risin sun.

  Then guidwife count the lawin, the lawin, the lawin,
  Then guidwife count the lawin, and bring a coggie mair.

Theres wealth and ease for gentlemen,
And semple-folk maun fecht and fen,
But here were a in ae accord,
For ilka man thats drunks a lord.

  Then guidwife count the lawin, the lawin, the lawin,
  Then guidwife count the lawin, and bring a coggie mair.

My coggie is a haly pool,
That heals the wounds o care and dool;
And pleasure is a wanton trout,
An ye drink it a yell find him out.

  Then guidwife count the lawin, the lawin, the lawin,
  Then guidwife count the lawin, and bring a coggie mair.
