Ye banks and braes o’ bonnie Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae wearey, fu’ o’ care?
Thou’lt break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro’ the flow’ring thorn,
Thou minds me o’ departed joys,
departed never to return.
Aft ha’e I rov’d by bonnie Doon
to see the rose and woodbine twine,
And ilka bird sang o’ its luve,
and fondly sae did I o’ mine
Wi’ lightsome heart I pu’d a rose
fu’ sweet upon its thorny tree,
But my fause lover staw my rose,
but ah! he left the thorn wi’ me.
