My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean

My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean

This is a classic song, and to be honest I don’t remember if I learned it at camp, in Girl Scout meetings, or in school.  I definitely remember singing it at camp though in later years as a Counselor-in-Training there.  At camp this was an excellent song to sing in the morning between the flag ceremony and breakfast to help wake the girls up.  It can also be a great activity to get the girls energized for a meeting. Remember, you sit down or get up (whichever comes next) every time you sing a word that starts with “B”!

My Bonnie lies over the sea
My Bonnie lies over the ocean
So bring back my Bonnie to me
Bring back, Bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, Bring back
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me
