Lassie wi the lovely face, full o' style land full O' grace
Take me in yer fond embrace and love me Bonnie Ktie
Lassie wi' the golden hair what tae thee can I compare
Flower of beauty Gem sae rare

From Arrans Isle tae Aberdeen, John O Groats tae Grena Green
Yin sae fair I've never seen than mya Bonnie Katie

Lassie' the laughin eyes take me tae yer Paradise
Tell me truer or tell me lies outlive me Bonnie Katie
Lassie wi the winning smile, make this life o mine worthwhile
Taker this heart ye sae beguile
