On A Beautiful Country Seat

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

We grant they're thine, those beauties all,
So lovely in our eye:
Keep them, thou eunuch, Cardoness,
For others to enjoy.

 

We grant they are your, those beauties all,
So lovely in our eye:
Keep them, you eunuch, Cardoness,
For others to enjoy.
