Bonnie Bessie Logan, she's handsome, young, and fair,
And O! the very wind that blows lingers in her hair.
She's lithesome, young, and lovely as she sails o'er the lea,
But bonnie Bessie Logan was ower young for me.

Bonnie Bessie Logan, the lads all lo'e her style,
And a' gae on afore her to win her lovin' smile.
I fain wad be amang them, but och that cannae be,
For bonnie Bessie Logan was ower young for me.r

Bonnie Bessie Logan, she stole my hairt awa'
And when I think upon her, the tears doon softly fa'.
For noo I lie wi' this ane until the day I dee,
For bonnie Bessie Logan was ower young for me.
