46. The Belles of Mauchline
 
 
IN Mauchline there dwells six proper young belles,
  The pride of the place and its neighbourhood a’;
Their carriage and dress, a stranger would guess,
  In Lon’on or Paris, they’d gotten it a’.
 
Miss Miller is fine, Miss Markland’s divine,        5
  Miss Smith she has wit, and Miss Betty is braw:
There’s beauty and fortune to get wi’ Miss Morton,
  But Armour’s the jewel for me o’ them a’.
