Song—I Hae a Wife O' My Ain

     I Hae a wife of my ain,
     I'll partake wi' naebody;
     I'll take Cuckold frae nane,
     I'll gie Cuckold to naebody.

     I hae a penny to spend,
     There—thanks to naebody!
     I hae naething to lend,
     I'll borrow frae naebody.

     I am naebody's lord,
     I'll be slave to naebody;
     I hae a gude braid sword,
     I'll tak dunts frae naebody.

     I'll be merry and free,
     I'll be sad for naebody;
     Naebody cares for me,
     I care for naebody.
