Wantonness For Evermair
TUNE: Wantonness

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Wantonness For Evermair

Wantonness for evermair,
Wantonness has been my ruin.
Yet for a' my dool and care
It's wantonness for evermair.
I hae lo'ed the Black, the Brown;
I hae lo'ed the Fair, the Gowden!
A' the colours in the town -
I hae won their wanton favour.

 

 

Wantonness For Evermore

Wantonness for evermore,
Wantonness has been my ruin.
Yet for all my sorrow and care
It is wantonness for evermore.
I have loved the Black, the Brown;
I have loved the Fair, the Golden!
All the colours in the town -
I have won their wanton favour.
