about

That's enough worry for now, time to enjoy some summer.

lyrics

Ne'er ask the hour what is it tae us
How Time deals out his treasures?
The golden moments lent tae us
They're no Time's coin they're Pleasure's

Then fill the cup, what is it tae us
How Time his circle measures?
Tae count aa the hours it is sic a fuss
Obey no wand but Pleasure's

Young Joy she ne'er thocht o countin the hours
Till Care yin summer's mornin
Set up amang his smilin floors
A dial by way of warnin

But Joy lo'd better tae gaze on the sun
As long as it's licht wis glowin
Than tae watch wi auld Care how the shadow stole on
An how fast the licht wis goin

Then fill the cup, what is it tae us
How Time his circle measures?
Tae count aa the hours it is sic a fuss
Obey no wand but Pleasure's

If countin them owre quid add tae their bliss
A wis number each glorious second
But moments o joy are like each lover's kiss
Too quick an sweet tae be reckoned

Then fill the cup, what is it tae us
How Time his circle measures?
Tae count aa the hours it is sic a fuss
Obey no wand but Pleasure's
