Donald's gane up the hill hard and hungry,|
Donald's come doon th' hill, wild and angry!
Donald will clear the gouk's nest cleverly;
Here's to the King and Donald MacGillavry!
|: Come like a weighbauk, Donald MacGillavry! :|
Balance them fair, and balance them cleverly!
Off wi' the counterfeit, Donald MacGillavry!
2. Donald's run o'er the hill but wi' his tether, man,
3. Donald has foughten wi' rief and wi' rougery;|
Donald has dinner'd wi' banes and beggary,
Better it were for Whigs and Whiggery:
Meetin' the Devil, than Donald MacGillavry!
|: Come like a tailor, Donald MacGillavry! :|
Push about, in and out, thimble them cleverly!
Here's tae King James and Donald MacGillavry!
4. Donald's the callan that brooks nae tangleness;
5. Donald was mumpit wi' mirds and mockery,|
Donald was blinded wi' blads o'property;
Arles ran high, but makin's were naethin', man!
Lord, how Donald is flyin' and frettin', man!
|: Come like the devil, Donald MacGillavry! :|
Skelp them and scaud them that proved sae unbritherly!
Up wi' King James and Donald MacGillavry!
