[00:17.00]💗 It being in the springtime and the small birds they were singing.
[00:25.00]💗 Down by yon shady harbour I carelessly did stray.
[00:34.00]💗 The the thrushes they were warbling, The violets they were charming.
[00:42.00]💗 To view fond lovers talking, a while I did delay.
[00:50.00]💗 She said, my dear don′t leave me for all another season.
[00:59.00]💗 Though fortune does be pleasing I ′ll go along with you.
[01:08.00]💗 I ′ll forsake friends and relations and bid this Irish nation.
[01:17.00]💗 And to the bonny Bann banks forever I ′ll bid adieu.
[01:25.00]💗 He said, my dear don′t grieve or yet annoy my patience.
[01:33.00]💗 You know I love you dearly the more I′m going away.
[01:42.00]💗 I′m going to a foreign nation to purchase a plantation.
[01:50.00]💗 To comfort us hereafter all in Amerika y.
[02:13.00]💗 Then after a short while a fortune does be pleasing.
[02:22.00]💗 T′will cause them for smile at our late going away.
[02:31.00]💗 We′ll be happy as Queen Victoria, all in her greatest glory.
[02:39.00]💗 We′ll be drinking wine and porter all in Amerika y.
[02:48.00]💗 If you were in your bed lying and thinking on dying.
[02:56.00]💗 The sight of the lovely Bann banks, your sorrow you′d give o′er.
[03:05.00]💗 Or if were down one hour, down in yon shady bower.
[03:14.00]💗 Pleasure would surround you, you′d think on death no more.
[03:38.00]💗 Then fare you well, sweet Cragie Hills, where often times I′ve roved.
[03:47.00]💗 I never thought my childhood days I ′d part you any more.
[03:55.00]💗 Now we′re sailing on the ocean for honour and promotion.
[04:05.00]💗 And the bonny boats are sailing, way down by Doorin shore.
