Every word on my mind
Bonny is your good-bye
Black, black, black, black is the day
No sun is shining in my world
Bonny, since you went away

Sad, sad, sad, sad in my heart
All my laughter's turned to tears
Bonny, since you've been apart

Every pretty flower has
Turned to brown
They all look like me
With their head tied down
My heart only sing the sadness song
Bonny, since you've been gone

Cry, cry, cry, you know I cry
Every word on my mind
Bonny is your good-bye
Every word on my mind
Bonny is you good-bye
