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