Rhyme: Robin Redbreast's Testement

Gude-day now, bonnie Robin,

How long have you been here?

I've been bird about this bush

This mair than twenty year!


But now I am the sickest bird

That ever sat on brier;

And I wad mak' my testament,

Gudeman, if ye wad hear.


Gae tak' this bonnie neb o' mine,

That picks upon the corn;

And gie't to the Duke o' Hamilton

To be a hunting-horn.


Gae tak' these bonnie feathers o' mine,

The feathers o' my neb;

And gi'e to the Lady o' Hamilton

To fill a feather-bed.


Gae tak' this gude richt leg o' mine,

And mend the brig o' Tay;

It will be a post and pillar gudeó

Will neither bow nor gae.

And tak' this other leg o' mine,

And mend the brig o' Weir;

It will be a post and pillar gudeó

Will neither bow nor steer.


Gae tak' thae bonnie feathers o' mine,

The feathers o' my tail:

And gie to the lads o' Hamilton

To be a barn-flail.


And tak' thae bonnie feathers o' mine,

The feathers o' my breast:

And gie to ony bonnie lad

Will bring to me a priest.


Now in there came my Lady Wren

Wi' mony a sigh and groan:

O what care I for a' the lads

If my ain lad be gone!


Then Robin turned him roundabout,

E'en like a little king;

Go; pack ye out o' my chamber-door,

Ye little cutty quean!


Robin made his testament

Upon a coll of hay;

And by cam' a greedy gled

And snapt him a' away.
