The Convicts Return

Written by: William Topaz McGonagall | Biography
 Ye mountains and glens of fair Scotland I'm with ye once again,
During my absence from ye my heart was like to break in twain;
Oh! How I longed to see you and the old folks at home,
And with my lovely Jeannie once more in the green woods to roam.
Now since I've returned safe home again I will try and be content With my lovely Jeannie at home, And forget my banishment.
My Jeannie and me will get married, And I will be to her a good man, And we'll live happy together, And do the best we can.
I hope my Jeannie and me Will always happy be, And never feel discontent; And at night at the fireside I'll relate to her the trials of my banishment.
But now I will never leave my Jeannie again Until the day I die; And before the vital spark has fled I will bid ye all good-bye.
