Here's an extra verse (second verse in my version)

Let the miser delight in the hoarding of pelf,
Since he has not the soul to enjoy it himself;
Since the bounty of Providence is new every day,
As we journey through life, let us live by the way.

a friend of mine lists this information at the bottom of the song

"The words (there is also another verse saluting Britain's King,) may be sung to "Wearin' o' the Green" but the tune used on the Gordon Bok/Ed Trickett/Ann Mayo Muir recording is SO much nicer.

And here are the definitions of some of the words:

crack = conversation
eident = diligence
flit = leave
lippened = depended on, trusted
nappy = strong, foamy
pelf = wealth
rinnin' = spinning
