Robert Burns, 1787

In comin by the brig o' Dye,
At Darlet we a blink did tarry;
As day was dawin in the sky,
We drank a health to bonie Mary.
Chorus:
|: Theniel Menzies' bonie Mary, :|
Charlie Grigor tint his plaidie,
Kissin' Theniel's bonie Mary.
2. Her een sae bright, her brow sae white,
Her haffet locks as brown's a berry;
And aye they dimpl't wi' a smile,
The rosy cheeks o' bonie Mary.
Chorus:

3. We lap a' danc'd the lee-lang day,
Till piper-lads were wae and weary;
But Charlie gat the spring to pay
For kissin Theniel's bonie Mary.
Chorus:
