My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean

Song Video

Lyrics

My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
My Bonnie lies over the sea.
My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
Please bring back my Bonnie to me.
Bring back,
Bring back,
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me, to me.
Bring back,
Bring back,
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.

Last night as I slept on my pillow,
Last night as I slept on my bed,
Last night as I slept on my pillow,
I dreamt that my Bonnie was dead.

Bring back,
Bring back,
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me, to me.
Bring back,
Bring back,
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.

I have fond memories of my Grandmother, who was born in Scotland, singing this to me and my sister. Thank you Rhona for adding the laast two verses. Made my day :-)

There is something we did for this song at school after Iowa assessments: someone recites this song and for any word beginning with b, you stand up or sit down, depending on how you are. It's good exercise.

1. My Bonnie lies over the ocean, My Bonnie lies over the sea. My Bonnie lies over the ocean, Oh bring back my Bonnie to me. 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 dreamt that my Bonnie was dead. Yes at least two other verses: 3. Oh blow ye winds over the ocean Oh blow ye winds over the sea Oh blow ye winds over the ocean And bring back my Bonnie to me! 4. The winds have blown over the ocean The winds have blown over the sea The winds have blown over the ocean And brought back my Bonnie to me. Last Chorus: Brought back, brought back, oh brought back my Bonnie to me, to me Brought back, brought back, oh brought back my Bonnie to me! A Traditional Scottish Folk Song - origins unclear but thought to refer to Bonnie Prince Charlie.
