Bainbo Burns night repertoire suggestions? (songs) (43) RE: Burns night repertoire suggestions? 11 Jan 20


As for humorous Burns’ work, I like his Epitaph For James Smith (or Epitaph for A Wag In Mauchline).

Lament him, Mauchline husbands a’,
He aften did assist ye;
For had ye staid hale weeks awa,
Your wives they ne’er had miss’d ye.

Ye Mauchline bairns, as on ye press
To school in bands thegither,
O tread ye lightly on his grass –
Perhaps he was your father!
