Poem by Robert Burns

I Hae a Wife

I HAE a wife o my ain,
  Ill partake wi naebody;
Ill tak cuckold frae nane,
  Ill gie cuckold to naebody.

I hae a penny to spend,
  There-thanks to naebody;
I has naething to lend,
  Ill borrow frae naebody.

I am naebodys lord,
  Ill be slave to naebody;
I hae a guid braid sword,
  Ill tak dunts frae naebody.

Ill be merry and free,
  Ill be sad for naebody;
Naebody cares for me,
  I care for naebody.
