On A Swearing Coxcomb

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Here cursing, swearing Burton lies,
A buck, a beau, or ' Dem my eyes!'
Who in his life did little good,
And his last words were :- ' Dem my blood!'

 

Here cursing, swearing Burton lies,
A buck, a beau, or ' Damn my eyes!'
Who in his life did little good,
And his last words were :- ' Damn my blood!'
