...me thy ways to me, my Eppie Macnab;
O come thy ways to me, my Eppie Macnab;
 Whate’er thou hast dune, be it late, be it sune,

 Tho’ e’er sae short.
Then wi’ a rhyme or sang he lash’d ’em,
 And thought it sport.

Yet that was never Robin’s mark

But tell him, he was learn’d and clark,
 Ye roos’d him then!
