My Bonnie lies over the ocean
« on: February 11, 2006, 11:31:05 PM »
My bonnie lies over the ocean
My bonnie lies over the sea
My bonnie lies over the ocean
Oh bring back my bonnie to me

Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my bonnie to me to me
Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my bonnie to me

With this version you can get everyone to stand up or sit down or put their hands up in the air or down,whatever you want really, every time a word starting with B is sung. So on the first bonnie you stand up,and on the second you sit down etc. You can then make it as complicated as you want by splitting the audience in 2 and having them do the opposite actions to each other.

My Bonnie-silly verses
My Bonnieís complexion was makeup, her face, it was beauteous to see;
Until she got caught in a rainstorm, Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.
My Bonnie leaned over the gas tank, the height of its contents to see;
I lighted a match to assist her, Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.
My Bonnie has tuberculosis, my Bonnie has only one lung,
My Bonnie can cough up raw oysters, and roll them around on her tongue.
My motherís an apple pie maker, my father he fiddles for tin,
My sister scrubs floors for a living, Oh boy, how the money rolls in.
Rolls in, rolls in, Oh boy, how the money rolls in, rolls in, etc.
Last night as I lay on my pillow, last night as I lay on my bed,
I stuck my feet out the window, next morning my neighbors were dead.
Bring back, bring back, Oh, bring my neighbors to me, to me, etc.
