Tune Where'll bonnie Ann lieA

IA
-
O stay sweet warbling woodlark stayB
Nor quit for me the trembling sprayB
A hapless lover courts thy layB
Thy soothing fond complainingC
-
IIA
-
Again again that tender partD
That I may catch thy melting artD
For surely that would touch her heartD
Wha kills me wi' disdainingC
-
IIIA
-
Say was thy little mate unkindE
And heard thee as the careless windE
Oh nocht but love and sorrow join'dF
Sic notes o' woe could waukenG
-
IVH
-
Thou tells o' never ending careI
O' speechless grief and dark despairI
For pity's sake sweet bird nae mairI
Or my poor heart is brokenG
