AN O! my Eppie,
My jewel, my Eppie!
Wha wadna be happy
  Wi Eppie Adair
By love, and by beauty,
By law, and by duty,
I swear to be true to
  My Eppie Adair!

An O! my Eppie,
My jewel, my Eppie!
Wha wadna be happy
  Wi Eppie Adair?
A pleasure exile me,
Dishonour defile me,
If eer I beguile thee,
  My Eppie Adair!
