Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
213. Song—Up in the Morning Early
 
 
CAULD blaws the wind frae east to west,
  The drift is driving sairly;
Sae loud and shill’s I hear the blast—
  I’m sure it’s winter fairly.
 
Chorus.—Up in the morning’s no for me,        5
  Up in the morning early;
When a’ the hills are covered wi’ snaw,
  I’m sure it’s winter fairly.
 
The birds sit chittering in the thorn,
  A’ day they fare but sparely;        10
And lang’s the night frae e’en to morn—
  I’m sure it’s winter fairly.
      Up in the morning’s, &c.
