The Banks o' Doon
(Robert Burns)

Ye flowery banks o'bonie Doon,
 How can ye blume sae fair;
How can ye chant, ye 1ittle birds,
  And I sae fu'o'care!

Thou'll break my heart, thou bonie bird
  That sings upon the bough;
Thou minds me o'the happy days
  When my fause luve was true.

Thou'll break my heart, thou bonie bird
  That sings beside thy mate;
For sae I sat, and sae I sang,
  And wist na o'my fate.

Aft hae I rov'd by bonie Doon,
 To see the wood-bine twine,
And ilka bird sang o'its love,
  And sae did I o'mine.

Wi'1ightsome heart I pu'd a rose
  Frae aff its thorny tree,
And my fause luver staw the rose,
 But left the thorn wi'me.

Wi'1ightsome heart I pu'd a rose,
  Upon a mom in June:
And sae I flourish'd on the morn,
  And sae was pu'd or noon!
