my bonnie lies over the ocean original song lyrics


My Bonnie Is Over the Ocean Songtext von Element of Crime mit Lyrics, deutscher √úbersetzung, Musik-Videos und Liedtexten kostenlos auf Songtexte.com Although the song's origin is uncertain, its original subject could possibly be Charles Edward Stuart ('Bonnie Prince Charlie'): after the defeat of the Prince at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and his subsequent exile, his Jacobite supporters could have sung this song or one like it in his honour; and thanks to the ambiguity of the term "Bonnie", which can refer to a woman as well as to a man, they could pretend it was a love song. My Bonnie lies over the ocean, My Bonnie lies over the sea, My Bonnie lies over the ocean, O bring back my Bonnie to me. Oh, blow, ye winds over the ocean, Oh, blow, ye winds over the sea; Oh, blow, ye winds over the ocean, And bring back my Bonnie to me. My Bonnie lies over the ocean, my Bonnie lies over the sea, My Bonnie lies over the ocean, O bring back my Bonnie to me.
