On Capt. Lascelles

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

When Lascelles thought fit from this world to depart,
Some friends warmly spoke of embalming his heart.
A bystander whispers :- ' Pray don't make so much o't -
The subject is poison, no reptile will touch it.'

A bystander whispers :- ' Pray do not make so much of it -
The subject is poison, no reptile will touch it.'
