She lent her back unto a thorn,
Hey wi' the rose and the lindie 0; And she's got her twa bonnie boys born,              is
Alane by the green burn sidie 0.
She's ta'en the ribbons frae her hair,
Hey uri? the rose and the lindie 0, Boun' their bodies fast and sair,
Alane by the green burn sidie 0.                              a>
She's put them aneath a marble stane,
Hey wi' the rose and the lindie 0, Thinkin' a may to gae her hame,
Alane by the green burn sidie 0.
Leukin' o'er her castel wa',                                             2s
Hey wi' the rose and the lindie 0, She spied twa bonny boys at the ba',
Alane by the green burn sidie 0.

Hey wi' the rose and the lindie 0,                           a>
I woud feed ye wi* the white bread and wine,

Hey w? the rose and the lindie 0, An' dress ye i' the finest silk,"                                      as

" O cruel mother, when we were thine,
Hey w? the rose and the lindie 0, We saw nane o' your bread and wine,
Alane by the green burn sidie 0.                               »
