Robert Burns (Роберт Бернс)


Ye Jacobites By Name


YE Jacobites by name, give an ear, give an ear;
  Ye Jacobites by name, give an ear;
    Ye Jacobitea by name,
      Your fautes I will proclaim,
        Your doctrines I maun blame-
          You shall hear.

What is right and what is wrang, by the law, by the law?
  What is right and what is wrang by the law?
    What is right and what is wrang?
      A short sword and a lang,
        A weak arm and a strang,
          For to draw.

What makes heroic strife, fam’d afar, fam’d afar?
  What makes heroic strife fam’d afar?
    What makes heroic strife?
      To whet th’ assassin’s knife,
        Or hunt a parent’s life
          Wi’ bluidie war.

Then let your schemes alone, in the state, in the state;
  Then let your schemes alone in the state;
    Then let your schemes alone,
      Adore the rising sun,
        And leave a man undone
          To his fate.
