                                            I've jinet up as a Gordon,
                                            At hame I couldna bide,
                                            For a' the fechtin' I had deen
                                            Was at my ain fireside.
                                            For Meg wid sae the ae thing
                                            An' I wid sae the tither,
                                            An' then of coorse, we'd baith fa' tee,
                                            An' syne fa' oot wi' ither.
                                            But aye she'd win the battle
                                            An' treat me like a cloot.
                                            First she'd dicht the fleer wi' me,
                                            An' syne she'd wring me oot.
                                            So I've jinet to be a sodger,
                                            For at hame I couldna bide.
                                            But noo that I'm a Gordon
                                            I'll be on the winnin' side.
                                            Jist ae mair thing tho I maun say,
                                            An' ask ye to believe,
                                            Wi' a' the courage I've got here,
                                            I'm feart to gang on leave!
