The warl' what an empty space,
Its honours dull an' fashious O,
Ye tittl'd crew what wa'd ye do,
An't were nae for the lassies O.
              Green grows, &c.

A marquis, duke, or yet a king,
The first o' honours classies O,
With humble mien they must bow down,
An' homage pay the lassies O.
              Green grows, &c.

Has Bonaparte the royal art,
O' rising kings in massies O;
I'm sure the brute will ne'er dispute
Wha rules him - it's the lassies O!
              Green grows, &c.
