Tune : Rob sheared in hairst Cal. Pocket Companion, 1753, v. p. 11.
Chorus. Robin shure in hairst, I shure «/»' him ; Fient a heuk had I, Yet I stack by him.
I gaed up to Dunse
To warp a wab o' plaiden; At his daddy's yett
Wha met me but Robin!
Was na Robin bauld, Tho' I was a cottar?
Play'd me sic a trick, An' me the Eller's dochter!
Robin promis'd me
A' my winter vittle; Fient haet he had but three
Guse feathers and a whittle!
No. 182, My love, she's but a lassie yet.
