...basses
 Ye hum away.


Ye are sae grave, nae doubt ye’re wise;
Nae ferly tho’ ye do despise
The hairum-scairum, ram-stam boys,
 The rattling squad:
I see ye upward cast your eyes—
 Ye ken the road!


Whilst I—but I shall haud me there,
Wi’ you I’ll scarce gang ony where—
Then, Jamie, I shall say nae mair,
 But quat my sang,
Content wi’ you to mak a pair.
 Whare’er I gang.
