There were twa bonnie maidens, and three bonnie maidens, W: Cam' ower the Minch, and cam' ower the main, W: Wi' the wind for their way and the corrie for their hame, W: And they're dearly welcome tae Skye again. W: W: Chorus: Come alang, come alang, wi' your boatie and your song, W: Tae my hey! bonnie maidens, my twa bonnie maids! W: The nicht, it is dark, and the redcoat is gane, W: And you're dearly welcome tae Skye again. W: W: 2. There is Flora, my honey, sae neat and sae bonnie, W: And ane that is tall, and handsome withall. W: Put the ane for my Queen and the ither for my King W: And they're dearly welcome tae Skye again. W: W: 3. There's a wind on the tree, and a ship on the sea, W: Tae my hey! bonnie maidens, my twa bonnie maids! W: By the sea mullet's nest I will watch o'er the main, W: And you're dearly welcome tae Skye again.
