On Mr. James Gracie

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Gracie, thou art a man of worth,
O, be thou Dean for ever!
May he be damn'd to Hell henceforth,
Who fauts thy weight or measure!

 

Gracie, you are a man of worth,
O, be you Dean for ever!
May he be damned to Hell henceforth,
Who challenges your weight or measure!
