Theniel Menzies Bonnie Mary


IN cowing by the brig o Dye,
  At Darlet we a blink did tarry;
As day was dawin in the sky
  We drank a health to bonnie Mary.
    Theniel Menzies bonnie Mary,
      Theniel Menzies bonnie Mary;
    Charlie Gregor tint his plaidie,
      Kissin Theniels bonnie Mary.

Her een sae bright, her brow sae white,
  Her haffet locks as browns a berry,
An aye they dimpled wi a smile
  The rosy cheeks o bonnie Mary.
    Theniel Menzies bonnie Mary,
      Theniel Menzies bonnie Mary;
    Charlie Gregor tint his plaidie,
      Kissin Theniels bonnie Mary.

We lap an danced the lee-lang day,
  Till piper lads were was an weary,
But Charlie gat the spring to pay
  For kissin Theniels bonnie Mary.
    Theniel Menzies bonnie Mary,
      Theniel Menzies bonnie Mary;
    Charlie Gregor tint his plaidie,
      Kissin Theniels bonnie Mary.
