I'll raise a glass of whiskey tonight

For auld Robbie Burns

While I may not be Scottish

There are things I could learn.

 

He wrote such poetry and song

With a distinctive Highland tone

That makes everyone yearn for the glen

No matter where they call home.

 

This day is celebrated with haggis

And tunes played on the pipes

Whatever you are doing

Enjoy this Burns night.

 

I'll raise a glass of whiskey tonight

And recite his Scottish rhyme

Join me where e'er you're from

For the sake of auld lang syne.
