'Twas Na Her Bonnie Blue Een.

Robert Burns 1759 (Alloway) – 1796 (Dumfries)

Tune - "Laddie, lie near me."
 

 

 
I.
 
'Twas na her bonnie blue een was my ruin;
Fair tho' she be, that was ne'er my undoing:
'Twas the dear smile when naebody did mind us,
'Twas the bewitching, sweet stown glance o' kindness.
 
II.
 
Sair do I fear that to hope is denied me,
Sair do I fear that despair maun abide me!
But tho' fell fortune should fate us to sever,
Queen shall she be in my bosom for ever.
 
III.
 
Mary, I'm thine wi' a passion sincerest,
And thou hast plighted me love o' the dearest!
And thou'rt the angel that never can alter -
Sooner the sun in his motion would falter.
