ye banks and braes
It is summer. Nature is in bloom and everything is full of life. But the person in this song is sad because they have a broken heart and not even the beauty of summer can cheer them up. Ye Banks and Braes is performed by Ellie Beaton.Ye Banks and Braes - lyrics
|YE BANKS AND BRAES by Robert Burns|
Ye banks and braes o bonnie Doon
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant ye little birds
And I sae weary fu o care?
Ye'll brak my hert, ye warblin bird,
That wantons through the flooery thorn
Ye mind me o depairted joys
Depairted never tae return
Aft hae I roved by bonnie Doon
Tae see the rose and woodbine twine
And ilka bird sang o its love
And fondly sae did I o mine
Wi lichtsome hert I pu’d a rose
Fu sweet upon its thorny tree
And my fause lover stole my rose
But ach! he left the thorn wi me.
