An O, for ane & twenty. Tam!
An hey, sweet ane & twenty, Tam!
I'll learn my kin a rattlin sang,
An I saw ane & twenty, Tam -

And gar me look like bluntie, Tam;
But three short years will soon wheel roun',
And then comes ane & twenty; Tam. -

Tho' I mysel hae plenty, Tam;
But hearst thou, laddie, there's my loof,
