For Thee Is Laughing Nature

TUNE: Scots Queen

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation


For Thee Is Laughing Nature

For thee is laughing Nature gay,
For thee she pours the vernal day:
For me in vain is Nature drest,
While Joy's a stranger to my breast.


For You Is Laughing Nature

For you is laughing Nature gay,
For you she pours the vernal day:
For me in vain is Nature dressed,
While Joy is a stranger to my breast.
