Burns Original

Standard English Translation

Boyd:
Dear Burns, your wit how can you flash
On such a wretch as this is?

Burns:
Dear Boyd, how can I let him pass,
The hangman so remiss is?

 


Dear Burns, your wit how can you flash
On such a wretch as this is?


Dear Boyd, how can I let him pass,
The hangman so remiss is?
