Ye Highlands and ye Lawlands.
Oh! where hae ye been?
...
What a treat to hear Thy Word
Where the bones of leading statesmen,
Have so often been interred.
Approval of what is approved of
Is as false as a well-kept vow.
Down came the hairy talons
and horrible poison blade
And none of the garden noticed
that fizzing, hopeless fight.
The clog of all pleasure, the luggage of life,
Is the best can be said for a very good wife.
Thou treacherous, base deserter of my flame,
False to my passion, fatal to my fame,
...
If you have a grateful heart (which is a miracle amongst you statesmen), show it by directing the bearer to the best wine in town, ...
and the words never said,
And the ominous, ominous dancing ahead.
...
Oh! full Surrey twilight! importunate band!
Oh! strongly adorable tennis-girl's hand!
Lord, reserve for me a crown,
And do not let my shares go down.
