The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
332. Song—You’re welcome, Willie Stewart
 
 
Chorus.—You’re welcome, Willie Stewart,
  You’re welcome, Willie Stewart,
There’s ne’er a flower that blooms in May,
  That’s half sae welcome’s thou art!
 
COME, bumpers high, express your joy,        5
  The bowl we maun renew it,
The tappet hen, gae bring her ben,
  To welcome Willie Stewart,
    You’re welcome, Willie Stewart, &c.
 
May foes be strang, and friends be slack        10
  Ilk action, may he rue it,
May woman on him turn her back
  That wrangs thee, Willie Stewart,
    You’re welcome, Willie Stewart, &c.
