Robin Cam' to the Wren's Door

Robin Cam' to the Wren's Door

1.
The robin cam' to the wren's door,
  And keekit in, and keekit in:
O, blessings on your bonnie pow,
  Wad ye be in, wad ye be in?
I wadna let you lie thereout,
  And I within, and I within,
As lang's I hae a warm clout,
  To row ye in, to row ye in.

2.
The robin cam to the wren's nest
  And keekit in, and keekit in:
"O weel's me on your auld pow
  Wad ye be in, wad ye be in?
For ye sall never lie without
  And me within, & me within,
As lang's I hae an auld clout,
  To row you in, to row you in."
