Bonny Green Osireo or The Cruel Mother

She's leaned her back against an oak,
All alone in the lailey O',
She's pushed, and she's pushed till her backs near broke.
Down in the bonny green Osireo.

2. She's leaned her head against a thorn,
All alone in the lailey O',
The two bonniest babes that ever were born.
Down in the bonny green Osireo.

3. She's gone back to her fathers castle hall,
All alone in the lailey O',
She was the smallest maid of them all.
Down in the bonny green Osireo.

4. She looks over her father's castle wall,
All alone in the lailey O',
She sees two babes a' playin' at the ball.
Down in the bonny green Osireo.

5. O, bonny babes if you were mine,
All alone in the lailey O',
I'd give you bread, and I'd give you wine.
Down in the bonny green Osireo.

6. Mother Dear Mother, when we were thine,
All alone in the lailey O',
Around our necks you pulled the twine.
Down in the bonny green Osireo.

7. Now we are in the heaven so High,
All alone in the lailey O',
And in hells fires you shall die.
Down in the bonny green Osireo.
