There lived a lady in Scotland
Hey my love, and Ho my joy
There lived a lady in Scotland
Wha’ dearly lo’ed thee
There lived a lady in Scotland
She’s fa’en in love wi’ an Englishman
Sae Bonnie Susie Clelland’s tae be burned in Dundee.

 

The father tae his dochter cam’
He dearly lo’ed her
Will ye forsake your Englishman?

Or will Bonnie Susie Clelland be burned in Dundee

 

I’ll no my Englishman forsake
Wha’ dearly lo’es me
Though ye may burn me at the stake
For Bonnie Susie Clelland’s tae be burned in Dundee

 

Whar can I find a bonnie wee boy
Wha dearly lo’es me
Tae carry tidings tae my joy
For Bonnie Susie Clelland’s tae be burned in Dundee

 

Oh here am I a bonnie wee boy
Wha’ dearly lo’es thee
I’ll carry tidings tae yer joy
For Bonnie Susie Clelland’s tae be burned in Dundee

 

Oh gie tae him my right hand glove
Wha’ dearly lo’es me
Tell him tae find anither love
For Bonnie Susie Clelland’s tae be burned in Dundee

 

Oh gie to him my guid gawd ring
Wha’ dearly lo’es me
Tell him I’m gan tae my burning

For Bonnie Susie Clelland’s tae be burned in Dundee


The father he ca’ed up the stake
Hey my love, and ho my joy
The father he ca’ed up the stake
He dearly lo’ed her

The faither he ca’ed up the stake
Her brither he the fire did make
And Bonnie Susie Clelland was burned in Dundee
