Charlie is my darling

Language: English

 O Charlie is my darling,
 My darling, my darling;
 O Charlie is my darling,
 The young cavalier.

'Twas on a Monday morning,
When birds were singing clear;
That Charlie to the Highlands came,
The gallant cavalier.


And many a gallant Scottish chief,
Came round their Prince to cheer,
That Charlie was their darling,
The young cavalier.


Now up the wild Glen Nevis,
And down by Locky side;
Young Malcom leaves his shealing,
And Donald leaves his bride.
