A Mans a Man for A That

A Mans a Man for A That by Robert Burns.
Throughout Fife, Burns Night will be celebrated on January 25th.

Is there for honest Poverty
That hings his head, an' a' that;
The coward slave-we pass him by,
We dare be poor for a' that!
For a' that, an' a' that,
Our toils obscure an' a' that,
The rank is but the guinea's stamp,
The Man's the gowd for a' that.
