Have ya seen owt a my bonnie lad,
And are ya sure he’s weel, oh?
He’s gan ower the land with his stick in his hand
He’s gan te moor the keel, oh!

Have ya seen
Ma bonnie lad?

Yes, a’ve seen your bonny lad,
Twas on the sea Aa spied him,
His grave is green but not with grass
‘n’ thou’lt never lie a side him.
