Burns Original

Standard English Translation

Chorus
O John, come kiss me now, now, now!
O John, my love, come kiss me now!
O John, come kiss me by and by,
For weel ye ken the way to woo!
1.
O, some will court and compliment,
And ither some will kiss and daut;
But I will mak o' my guidman,
My ain guidman - it is nae faut!
2.
O, some will court and compliment,
And ither some will prie their mou',
And some will hause in ither's arms,
And that's the way I like to do!

Chorus
O John, come kiss me now, now, now!
O John, my love, come kiss me now!
O John, come kiss me by and by,
For well you know the way to woo!

O, some will court and compliment,
And other some will kiss and pet;
But I will make of my husband,
My own husband - it is no fault!

O, some will court and compliment,
And other some will taste their mouth,
And some will cuddle in other's arms,
And that is the way I like to do!
