And Rob and Allan cam to see ; Three blyther hearts that lee-lang night
Ye wadna found in Christendie.
Chorus. We are na fouy we're nae that fou, But just a drappie in our e'e; The cock may craw, the day may daw, And ay we'll taste the barley bree.

And monie a night we've merry been, And monie mae we hope to be!
