Under The Portrait Of Miss Burns

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Cease, ye prudes, your envious railing!
Lovely Burns has charms: confess!
True it is she had ae failing:
Had ae woman ever less?

 

Cease, you prudes, your envious railing!
Lovely Burns has charms: confess!
True it is she had one failing:
Had one woman ever less?
