by Robert Burns (1759 - 1796)

The wren's nest
Language: Scottish (Scots) 
The Robin to the Wren's nest 
Cam keekin' in, cam keekin' in; 
O weel's me on your auld pow, 
Wad ye be in, wad ye be in? 
Thou's ne'er get leave to lie without, 
And I within, and I within, 
Sae lang's I hae an auld clout 
To rowe ye in, to rowe ye in.
