Last night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay on my bed,
Last night as I lay on my pillow, well, let me tell you now
You know I dreamed
(yes I did)
Well I dreamed

Whoa I dreamed now

You know I dreamed that
Dreamed my little bonnie was dead.

Oh-oh, sing it children

Well, bring back
Bring my Bonnie back to me
(whoa) whoa (whoa) whoa (whoa) Whoa!

Whoa-oh, bring it back

Please, bring her back right now
Bring back
Bring my Bonnie back to me
(my bonnie back to me)
