The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
322. Song—The Bonie Wee Thing
 
 
Chorus.—Bonie wee thing, cannie wee thing,
  Lovely wee thing, wert thou mine,
I wad wear thee in my bosom,
  Lest my jewel it should tine.
 
WISHFULLY I look and languish        5
  In that bonie face o’ thine,
And my heart it stounds wi’ anguish,
  Lest my wee thing be na mine.
                Bonie wee thing, &c.
 
Wit, and Grace, and Love, and Beauty,        10
  In ae constellation shine;
To adore thee is my duty,
  Goddess o’ this soul o’ mine!
                Bonie wee thing, &c.
