Is there for honest Poverty

Typisch Schottland... typisch Schottland


'Is there for honest Poverty' (auch: A Man's a Man for A' that) ist ein schottisches Lied von Robert Burns aus dem Jahr 1795.



  • 'Is there for honest Poverty' Liedtext
  • 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.

  • What though on hamely fare we dine,
  • Wear hodden grey, an' a that;
  • Gie fools their silks, and knaves their wine;
  • A Man's a Man for a' that:
  • For a' that, and a' that,
  • Their tinsel show, an' a' that;
  • The honest man, tho' e'er sae poor,
  • Is king o' men for a' that.
  • Ye see yon birkie, ca'd a lord,
  • Wha struts, an' stares, an' a' that;
  • Tho' hundreds worship at his word,
  • He's but a coof for a' that:
  • For a' that, an' a' that,
  • His ribband, star, an' a' that:
  • The man o' independent mind
  • He looks an' laughs at a' that.

  • A prince can mak a belted knight,
  • A marquis, duke, an' a' that;
  • But an honest man's abon his might,
  • Gude faith, he maunna fa' that!
  • For a' that, an' a' that,
  • Their dignities an' a' that;
  • The pith o' sense, an' pride o' worth,
  • Are higher rank than a' that.
  • Then let us pray that come it may,
  • (As come it will for a' that,)
  • That Sense and Worth, o'er a' the earth,
  • Shall bear the gree, an' a' that.
  • For a' that, an' a' that,
  • It's coming yet for a' that,
  • That Man to Man, the world o'er,
  • Shall brothers be for a' that.
