Is there for honest poverty
That hangs his head, an a' that?
The coward slave, we pass him by -
we dare be poor for a' that!
For a' that, and a' that
Our toils obscure, and a' that,
The rank is but the guinea's stamp,
The man's the gowd for a' that. -
What though on hamely fare we dine,
Wear hoddin grey, and a' that.
Gie fools their silks, and knaves their wine,
A Man's a Man for a' that;
For a' that, and a' that,
Their tinsel show, and a' that,
The honest man, though e'er sae poor,
Is king o' men for a' that.
