Louis, What Reck I By Thee
TUNE: (As Title)

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

Louis, What Reck I By Thee
1.
Louis, what reck I by thee,
Or Geordie on his ocean?
Dyvor beggar louns to me!
I reign in Jeanie's bosom.
2.
Let her crown my love her law
And in her breast enthrone me,
Kings and nations - swith awa!
Reif randies, I disown ye.

Louis, What Heed I By You

Louis, what heed I by you,
Or George on his ocean?
Bankrupt beggar rascals to me!
I reign in Jean's bosom.

Let her crown my love her law
And in her breast enthrone me,
Kings and nations - get away!
Thieving rascals, I disown you.
