Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

You're Welcome, Willie Stewart
TUNE: Ye're welcome, Charlie Stewart

Chorus
You're welcome, Willie Stewart!
You're welcome, Willie Stewart!
There's ne'er a flower that blooms in May,
That's half sae welcome's thou art!
1.
Come, bumpers high! express your joy!
The bowl we maun renew it -
The tappet-hen, gae bring her ben,
To welcome Willie Stewart!
2.
May foes be strong, and friends be slack!
Ilk action, may he rue it!
May woman on him turn her back,
That wrangs thee, Willie Stewart!

 

 

You Are Welcome, Willie Stewart
(You are welcome, Charlie Stewart)

Chorus
You are welcome, Willie Stewart!
You are welcome, Willie Stewart!
There is never a flower that blooms in May,
That is half so welcome as you are!

Come, bumpers (full glasses) high! express your joy!
The bowl we must renew it -
The large whiskey bottle, go bring her through,
To welcome Willie Stewart!

May foes be strong, and friends be slack!
Each action, may he rue it!
May woman on him turn her back,
That wrongs you, Willie Stewart!
