THE TWA SISTEE8.
The eldest she was vexed sair,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! And sair envied her sister fair,
By the bonny miU-dams o' Binnorie.
Intill her bower she coudna rest,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! Wi' grief and spite she maistly brast,
By the bonny miU-dams o' Binnorie.
Upon a morning fair and clear,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! She cried upon her sister dear,
By the bonny miU-dams o' Binnorie.
" 0 sister, come to yon sea strand,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! And see our father's ships come to land,
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.
She's ta'en her by the milk-white hand,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! And led her down to yon sea strand,
By the bonny miU-dams o' Binnorie.
The youngest stood upon a stane,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie / The eldest came and threw her in,
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.
