Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Robin's Last Will
This tune has haunted me since early schooldays... it always, and even now was so sad it made me feel like crying. I could find no trace of it on internet until now.

I spied a little robin, twas on the brig o Dee.....
The little robin ended, and closed his tiny eyes,
and down upon the ground he fell, never more to rise.
