Standard English Translation

Let Loove Sparkle

Ithers seek they kenna what,
Features, carriage and a' that;
Gie me loove in her I court -
Loove to loove maks a' the sport.
2.
Let loove sparkle in her e'e,
Let her lo'e nae man but me:
That's the tocher guid I prize,
There the luver's treasure lies.

 

Let Love Sparkle

Others seek they know not what,
Features, carriage and all that;
Give me love in her I court -
Love to love makes all the sport.

Let love sparkle in her eye,
Let her love no man but me:
That is the dowry good I prize,
There the lover's treasure lies.
