Theniel Menzie's Bonie Mary
In comin by the brig o Dye,
At Darlet we a blink did tarry;
As day was dawin in the sky,
We drank a health to bonie Mary.
Theniel Menzies' bonie Mary,
Theniel Menzies'bonie Mary,
Charlie Grigor tint his plaidie,
Kissin Theniel's bonie.Mary.
Her een sae bright, her brow sae white,
Her haffet locks as brown's a berry,
And ay they dimpl't wi' a smile,
The rosy cheeks o' bonie Mary.
We lap an danc'd the lee-lang day,
Till piper-lads were wae and weary;
But Charlie gat the spring to pay,
For kissin Theniel's bonie Mary.
