" And we will kilt our gay claithing
A little below the knee; And we will on the gude green-wud,
Gif Robin Hood we see.                                 
" And we will change our ain twa names,
When we gae frae the toun,— The tane we will call Nicholas,
The tither Rogee Roun."
Then they hae cow'd their yellow locks, as
A little abune their bree ; And they are on to gude green-wud
To serve for meat and fee.
And they hae kilt their gay claithing
A little below their knee,                                  a>
And they are on to gud green-wud, Gif Robin Hood they see.
And they hae chang'd thair ain twa names, When they gaed frae the toun ;—
The tane they've called Nicholas,                    &
The tither Rogee Roun.
And they hae staid in gude green-wud,
And never a day thoucht long, Till it fell ance upon a day,
That Rogee sang a sang.                                  •»
