When she came ben she bobbit,|
When she came ben she bobbit,
When she came ben she kissed Cockpen
And then denied that she did it.
And wasna Cockpen richt fawcy,
And wasna Cockpen richt fawcy?
Ne len'd his lady to gentlemen
And he kissed the collier lassie.
And wasna Cockpen richt able,|
And wasna Cockpen richt able?
He left his lady wi' gentlemen,
And he kissed the lass in the stable.
"O, are you wi' bairn, my chicken,
O, are you wi' bairn, my chicken?"
"O, if I am not, I hope to be,
E'er the green leaves be shaken."
Tradition has it the Laird of Cockspen was a boon companion of Charles II.|
