New every morningEvery day is a fresh beginning
Listen my soul to the glad refrain
And, spite of old sorrows
And older sinning
Troubles forecasted and
Take heart with the day
and begin again
If you feel like impressing someone with a Scottish accent just learn the first verse of 'To a mouse'
Wee sleeker, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie
O, what a panic's in thy breastie,
Thou need na start awa' sae hasty
Wi' bickerin' brattle
I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee
Wi' murderin' prattle!
In Italian to learn something off by heart is translated as a memoria, which means by memory. Parrot fashion is the same a pappagallo.
