Sit doon here my cronies, and gie us your crack
Let the wind tak' the care o' this life on its back
Oor hearts to despondency we never will submit
For we've always been provided for, and sae will we yet

And sae will we yet, and sae will we yet
For we've aye been provided for, and sae will we yet

Success to the farmer, and prosper his plough
Rewarding his industrious toils a' the year through
For the seed-time and harvest we ever will get
For we've trusted aye in Providence, and sae will we yet

And sae will we yet, and sae will we yet
For we've trusted aye in Providence, and sae will we yet

And bring us all a tankard o' the heaviest brown ale
To bring comfort to our hearts and enliven the tale
We'll always be the merrier the langer that we sit
We've drunk together mony's the time, and sae will we yet

And sae will we yet, and sae will we yet
We've drunk together  mony's the time, and sae will we yet

Let the glass keep it's course and gang merrily around
For the sun it will rise, when the moon has gone down
When the house is runnin round aboot, it's time enough tae flit
When we fell we aye got up again, and sae will we yet

And sae will we yet, and sae will we yet
When we fell we aye got up again, and sae will we yet
