The first point is what is a Burns song ?????? Burns spent many years collecting songs and amending them for "polite society". What he heard and sang in "The Globe" (Dumfries) and what he sang at dinner parties would bear little resembelance. Sorry Catrin if you actually study Rabbie's poetry you will soon realise that he could NEVER have written many of the songs atributed to him.
