Robin Redbreast rose up early,
All at the break of day, And he flew to Jenny "Wren's house,
And sung a roundelay; He sang of Robin Redbreast,
And little Jenny Wren, And when he came unto the end,
He then began again.
JENNY WREN fell sick
Upon a merry time ; In came Robin Redbreast,
And brought her sops and wine.
Eat well of the sop, Jenny, Drink well of the wine;
Thank you, Robin, kindly, You shall be mine.
Jenny, she got well,
And stood upon her feet,
And told Robin plainly, She loved him not a bit.
Robin being angry,
Hopp'd upon a twig; Saying, Out upon you, Jenny!
Fie upon you, bold faced jig!
