Poem by Robert Burns

O Steer Her Up

O STEER her up, and haud her gaun-
  Her mothers at the mill, jo;
And gin she winna take a man,
  Een let her take her will, jo:
First shore her wi a kindly kiss,
  And ca another gill, jo;
And gin she take the thing amiss,
  Een let her flyte her fill, jo.

O steer her up, and be na blate,
  An gin she tak it ill, jo,
Then leae the lassie till her fate,
  And time nae langer spill, jo:
Neer break your heart for ae rebute,
  But think upon it still, jo;
Then gin the lassie winna dot,
  Yell fin anither will, jo.
