I’m a ruddy robin redbreast
And an outdoor bathing freak,
I dive into puddles undressed,
So I end up looking sleek
And the chicks will find me chic
(And the chicks will find me chic).
I have ruffled all my feathers
From the wing tips to my chest.
Come rain or shine, all weathers,
I with redbreast stroke impressed.
I bet all of you had guessed.
(I bet all of you had guessed).
Up you tiptoe till you’re too near.
I don’t give a toss or fig
For we cock rob ins don’t do fear.
In our self-image we are big
Like we spade perch when you dig
(Like we spade perch when you dig).
There are limits. Wait a minute.
You’re encroaching on my space.
You’re not dealing with mere linnet.
I’m a robin, in your face.
I shall exit now with grace.
(I shall exit now with grace).
