Mauchline Belles
(Robert Burns)

In Mauchline there dwells six proper young belles,
  The pride of the place and its neighbourhood a',
Their carriage and dress, a stranger would guess,
   In Lon'on or Paris, they'd gotten it a'.

Miss Miller is fine, Miss Murkland's divine,
  Miss Smith she has wit, and Miss Betty is braw,
There's beauty and fortune to get wi' Miss Morton;
  But Armour's the jewel for me o' them a'.    "

Tune: Bonie Dundee (157)
