Wan Luesome Day

O this bonnie wee lass o mine,
Aye, this bonnie wee lass o mine,
Bidin her luve,
Tae see me again,
Wan luesome day.

Aye, a ken ma weird,
It isnae fir the faint o hert,
Bidin ma tyme,
Tae be wae her again.

But a ken ma faith,
In a feirdy luve fir the ages,
Fae ma hert tae hers,
In a hecht fae wan knee.

O this bonnie wee lass o mine,
Aye, this bonnie wee lass o mine,
Tae see you again,
Tae haud you again,
Is aw ma hert kens.

And on ma murnfu lea'in,
A hark upon the starny sky,
And on ma jurney hame'
Tae the land o the brave,
A borrae fae the speerit,
O aw the sindert luvies ere'

That this bonnie wee lass o mine,
Kens ma hecht,
And kens ma luve,
That it's oor weird tae meet again,
Wan luesome day.

O this bonnie wee lass o mine,
Aye this bonnie wee lass o mine,
Till oor herts meet again,
Wan luesome day.

One Pleasant Day

Oh, this beautiful woman of mine,
Yes, the beautiful woman of mine,
Biding her love,
To see me again,
One pleasant day.

Yes, I know my fate,
It isn't for the faint of heart,
Biding my time,
To be with her again,

But I know my fate,
In a strong love for the ages,
From my heart to hers,
In a promise from one knee.

Oh, this beautiful woman of mine,
Yes, the beautiful woman of mine,
To see you again,
To hold you again,
Is all my heart knows.

And upon my mournful leaving,
I wish upon the starry sky,
And on my journey home,
To the land of the brave,
I borrow from the spirit,
Of all the separated lovers before.

That this beautiful woman of mine,
Knows my promise,
And knows my love,
That it is our fate to meet again,
One pleasant day.

Oh, this beautiful woman of mine,
Yes, this beautiful woman of mine,
Until our hearts meet again,
One pleasant day.
