Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow the wind south o'er the bonny blue sea;
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow bonnie breeze, my lover to me.
They told me last night there were ships in the offing,
and i hurried down to the deep rolling sea;
But my eye could not see it wherever might be it,
the barque that is bearing my lover to me.
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow bonnie breeze o'er the bonny blue sea;
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow bonnie breeze, and bring him to me.
Oh is it not sweet to hear the breeze singing
as lightly it comes o'er the deep rolling sea?
But sweeter and dearer by far when tis bringing
the barque of my true love in safety to me.

Let us wander not unseen,
by the elms on hillocks green,
while the ploughman near at hand
whistles o'er the furrow'd land.
And the milk maid singeth blithe
and the mower whets his scythe.
Let us wander not unseen,
by the elms on hillocks green,
while the ploughman near at hand
whistles o'er the furrow'd land.
And the shepherd tells his tale,
beneath the hawthorn in the dale.
Let us wander not unseen,
by the elms on hillocks green,
while the ploughman near at hand
whistles o'er the furrow'd land.

Have you seen but a bright lily grow
before rude hands have touched it?
Have you marked but the fall of the snow
before the earth hath smudged it?
Have you felt the wool of beaver,
Or swan's down ever?
Or have smelt o' the bud o' the brier,
Or the nard in the fire?
Or have tasted the bag of the bee?
Oh so white, Oh so soft, Oh so sweet, so sweet...
So sweet is she!
