O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!
It wad frae monie a blunder free us,
An’ foolish notion:
What airs in dress an’ gait wad lea’e us,
An’ ev’n devotion!
O would some Power the small gift give us
To see ourselves as others see us!
It would for many a blunder free us,
And foolish notion:
What airs in dress and gait would leave us
And even devotion!
