I hae a wife o my ain
written in 1788
I Hae a wife o' my ain, I'll partake wi' naebody; I'll tak 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.
