Excerpt from The Scottish Songs, Vol. 2 of 2
How happy is the shepherd's life, Far frae courts and free of strife 1. While the gimmers bleat. And bae, And the lambkins answer mae; No such music to his earl Of thief or fox he has no fear Sturdy kent, and collie true, Weil defend the tarry woo.
He lives content, and envies none Not even a monarch on his throne, Though he the royal sceptre sways, Has such pleasant holidays.
Who'd be king, can ony tell, When a shepherd sings sae well Sings sae well, and pays his due With honest heart and tarry woof.
