Robert Burns, 1789

Chorus:
Robin shure in hairst,
I shure wi' him:
Fient a heuk had I,
Yet I stack by him.

I gaed up to Dunse,
To warp a wab o' plaiden,
At his daddie's yet,
Wha met me but Robin!

2. Was na Robin bauld,
Tho' I was a cotter?
Play'd me sic a trick,
An me the El'er's dochter!
Chorus:

3. Robin promis'd me
A' my winter vittle:
Fient haet he had but three
Guse-feathers and a whittle!
Chorus:
