On A Noisy Polemic

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Below thir stanes lie Jamie's banes:
O Death, it's my opinion,
Thou ne'er took such a bleth'rin bitch
Into thy dark dominion.

 

Below those stones lie Jamie's bones:
O Death, it is my opinion,
You never took such a nonsense talking bitch
Into your dark dominion.
