                                                 There were three kings cam frae the East ;
                                                    They spiered in ilka clachan :
                                                "O, which is the wey to Bethlehem,
                                                    My bairns, sae bonnily lachin' ?"
                                                O neither young nor auld could tell ;
                                                    They trailed till their feet were weary.
                                                They followed a bonny gowden starn,
                                                    That shone in the lift sae cheery.
                                                The starn stude ower the ale-hoose byre
                                                    Whaur the stable gear was hingin' .
                                                The owsen mooed, the bairnie grat,
                                                    The kings begoud their singin' .
