THERE 1 was a lad was born in Kyle,
But whatna day o’ whatna style,
I doubt it’s hardly worth the while
To be sae nice wi’ Robin.
 
 
Chor.—Robin was a rovin’ boy,
Rantin’, rovin’, rantin’, rovin’,
Robin was a rovin’ boy,
Rantin’, rovin’, Robin!

Was five-and-twenty days begun, 2
'Twas then a blast o’ Janwar’ win’
Blew hansel in on Robin.
Robin was, &c.

Quo’ scho, “Wha lives will see the proof,
This waly boy will be nae coof:
I think we’ll ca’ him Robin.”

“He’ll hae misfortunes great an’ sma’,
But aye a heart aboon them a’,
He’ll be a credit till us a’—
We’ll a’ be proud o’ Robin.”

The bonie lasses lie aspar;
But twenty fauts ye may hae waur
So blessins on thee! Robin.”
