Altered
(Robert Burns)
How cruel are the Parents
  Who riches only prize,
And to the wealthy booby
  Poor Woman sacrifice:

Meanwhile the hapless Daughter
  Has but a choice of strife;
To shun a tyrant Father's hate,
  Become a wretched Wife.-
The ravening hawk pursuing,
  The trembling dove thus flies,
To shun impelling ruin
  Awhile her pinions tries;
Till of escape despairing,
  No shelter or retreat,
She trusts the ruthless Falconer
  And drops beneath his feet.
Tune:John Anderson My Jo
