Epitaph On A Henpecked Squire

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

As father Adam first was fool'd,
A case that's still too common,
Here lies a man a woman rul'd:
The Devil ruled the woman.

As father Adam first was fooled,
A case that's still too common,
Here lies a man a woman ruled:
The Devil ruled the woman.
