Poem by Robert Burns


* * *


WEARY fa you, Duncan Gray-
  Ha, ha, the girdin ot!
Wae gee by you, Duncan Gray-
  Ha, ha, the girdin ot!
When a the lave gae to their play,
Then I maun sit the lee-lang day,
And jog the cradle wi my tae,
  And a for the girdin ot.

Bonnie was the Lammas moon-
  Ha, ha, the girdin ot!
Glowrin a the hills aboon-
  Ha, ha, the girdin ot!
The girdin brak, the beast cam down,
I tint my curch, an baith my ahoon;
Ah! Duncan, yere an unco loon-
  Wae on the bad girdin ot!

But, Duncan, gin yell keep your aith-
  Ha, ha, the girdin ot!
Ise bless you wi my hindmost breath-
  Ha, ha, the girdin ot!
Duncan, gin yell keep your aith,
The beast again can bear us baith,
And auld Mess John will mend the skaith,
  And clout the bad girdin ot.
