Eppie Adair

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

Chorus
An' O my Eppie,
My jewel, my Eppie!
Wha wadna be happy
Wi' Eppie Adair?
1.
By love and by beauty
By law and by duty,
I swear to be true to
My Eppie Adair!
2.
A' pleasure exile me,
Dishonour defile me,
If e'er I beguile thee,
My Eppie Adair!

Chorus
And O my Eppie,
My jewel, my Eppie!
Who would not be happy
With Eppie Adair?

By love and by beauty
By law and by duty,
I swear to be true to
My Eppie Adair!

All pleasure exile me,
Dishonour defile me,
If ever I beguile you,
My Eppie Adair!
