My Bonnie Lyrics 

My Bonnie lies over the ocean, my Bonnie lies over the sea,
My Bonnie lies over the ocean, O bring back my Bonnie to me.
Bring back, bring back, O bring back my Bonnie to me, to me:
Bring back, bring back, O bring back my Bonnie to me.
O blow ye winds over the ocean, O blow ye winds over the sea.
O blow ye winds over the ocean, And bring back my Bonnie to me.
Bring back, bring back, O bring back my Bonnie to me, to me:
Bring back, bring back, O bring back my Bonnie to me.

Coffee is not for me
It's a drink some people wake up with
That it makes them nervouse is no myth
Slaves to their coffee cup
they can't give coffee up
