COME Jets ha"e mair wine in,
Bacchus hates repining,
venus loves nae dwinmg,
Let s be blyth and free.
Away with dull— Here tye, Sir;
VeVr miltrefs, Robie, gie's her,
We'll drink her health wi' pleafure,
Wha's belov'd by thee?
Then let Peggy warm ye,
That s a lafs can charm ye,
And to joys alarm ye,
Sweet is fhe to me.
Some angel ye wad ca - * her,
And never wifh ane brawer,
If ye bare-headed faw her
Kilted to the knee.
Peggy a dainty lafs is,
Come lets' join our glaffes,
And refrrfh our haufes
With a health to thee.
I ■ ' roofs their caih be clinking,
Be irate men tint in thinking,
While we with lave and drinking,
Give our cares the lie.
