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.

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 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.

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

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.

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

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, to me.

Brought back, brought back,
Brought back my Bonnie to me, to me
Brought back, brought back,
They brought back my Bonnie to me.

After the chorus,
there is another para
(at least thats how we were taught the same):
It's far away over the oceans
It's far away over the seas
A beautiful palace is waiting
For my dear little Bonnie and me
Sailing, sailing, its far away over
the seas...
