Well I should jolly well think so

Murder me with a plough-staff, indeed

Good to hear that!

Translation into English for you!

Small, sleek, cowering, timorous beast,
O, what a panic is in your breast!
You need not start away so hasty
With hurrying scamper!
I would be loath to run and chase you,
With murdering plough-staff.

Hello - yes, we're all, um, cowran'd up <uncomprehending>

O, what a panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,
Wi' murd'ring pattle!

MNHQ this is your gentle reminder that burns night is this week smile
