226. Song—I hae a Wife o' my Ain

 I HAE a wife of my ain,
 I’ll partake wi’ naebody;
I’ll take Cuckold frae nane,
 I’ll gie Cuckold to naebody.
I hae a penny to spend, There—thanks to naebody! I hae naething to lend, I’ll borrow frae naebody.
I am naebody’s lord, I’ll be slave to naebody; I hae a gude braid sword, I’ll tak dunts frae naebody.
I’ll be merry and free, I’ll be sad for naebody; Naebody cares for me, I care for naebody.
