Ye can gaird yer bonnie reid balloon as hard as ye like Elsie but ye ken yon pawkie brither o yoors is gonna burst it.

He aye does.

Ahn no pop gun, superstrengthened spring or no, is gonna stop him.


gaird: guard, protect.

You can protect your pretty red balloon as hard as you like Elsa but you know that that tricky brother of yours is going to burst it.

He always does.

And no pop gun, superstrengthened spring or not, is going to stop him.
