Lyrics Bonnie Lesley

O, saw ye bonnie Lesley,
As she gaed o'er the border?
She's gane like Alexander
To spread her conquests further,
To see her is to love her,
And love her but forever,
For Nature made her what she is,
And ne'er made sic anither.

Thou art a queen, fair Lesley,
Thy subjects we before thee:
Thou art divine, fair Lesley,
The hearts of men adore thee.
The de'il he cou'dna skaith thee,
Or aught that wad belang thee,
He'd look into thy bonnie face,
And say, I canna wrang thee.

The powers aboon will tent thee,
Misfortune sha'na steer thee;
Thou'rt like themsels sae lovely
That ill they'll ne'er let near thee.
Return again, fair Lesley,
Return to Caledonie!
That we may brag, we hae a lass,
There's nane again sae bonnie.
