To Miss Ainslie In Church

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Fair maid, you need not take the hint,
Nor idle tests pursue;
'Twas guilty sinners that he meant,
Not angels such as you.

 

Fair maid, you need not take the hint,
Nor idle tests pursue;
It was guilty sinners that he meant,
Not angels such as you.
