My Bonnie is over the ocean

Representative Text

1 My Bonnie is over the ocean,
My Bonnie is over the sea,
My Bonnie is over the ocean;
Oh! bring back my Bonnie to me.

Chorus:
Bring back, bring back,
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me;
Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.

2 Oh! blow, ye winds, over the ocean,
And blow, ye winds, over the sea,
Oh! blow, ye winds, over the ocean,
And bring back my Bonnie to me. [Chorus]

2 Last night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay on my bed,
Last night, as I lay on my pillow,
I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead. [Chorus]
