242                      THE TWA SISTERS.
You coudna see her middle sma                        sn
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! For gouden girdle that was sae braw,
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.
You coudna see her fingers white,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie !                                    90
For gouden rings that were sae gryte,
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.
And by there came a harper fine,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! That harped to the king at dine,                        as
By the bonny miU-dams o' Binnorie.
Whan he did look that lady upon,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! He sigh'd and made a heavy moan,
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.            ioo
He's ta'en three locks o' her yellow hair,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie.' And wi' them strung his harp sae fair,
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.
The first tune it did play and sing,                   10a
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! Was, " Fareweel to my father the king,"
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.
