The sheep's in the meadow, The kye's in the corn,
(Thou's ower lang in thy bed,) Bonny at morn.
Canny at night, Bonny at morn,
(Thou's ower lang in thy bed,) Bonny at morn.

The bird's in the nest, The trout's in the burn,
Thou hinders thy mother in many a turn,
Canny at night, Bonny at morn,
Thou hinders thy mother in many a turn,

We're all laid idle, Wi' keepin' the bairn,
The lad winnot work, And the lass winnot lairn.
Canny at night, Bonny at morn,
(Thou's ower lang in thy bed,) Bonny at morn.
