Poem by Robert Burns

The Carles of Dysart

UP wi the carles of Dysart,
  And the lads o Buckhaven,
And the kimmers o Largo,
  And the lasses o Leven.
    Hey, ca thro, ca thro,
      For we hae mickle ado;
    Hey, ca thro, ca thro,
      For we hae mickle ado.

We hae tales to tell,
  And we hae sangs to sing;
We has pennies to spend,
  And we has pints to bring.

Well live a our days,
  And them that come behin,
Let them do the like,
  And spend the gear they win.

Robert Burns
