Twas on a Monday morning,
Right early in the year
When Charlie came to our town
The young Chevalier.
chorus
Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling,
Charlie is my darling, the young Chevalier.

And he came marching up the street,
The pipes played loud and clear,
And a' the folks cam' rinnin' out
To meet the Chevalier.
chorus

Wi' highland bonnets on their heads
And claymores bright and clear,
They cam' to fight for Scotland's right
And the young Chevalier.
chorus

They've left their bonnie highland hills,
Their wives and bairnies dear,
To draw the sword for Scotland's lord,
The young Chevalier.
chorus

Oh, there were many beating hearts,
And mony a hope and fear,
And mony were the pray'rs put up,
For the young Chevalier.

This song was written by Carolina Oliphant also known as Lady Nairne. Her father and granfather had joined the 1745 Jacobite Rising. She was named after Bonnie Prince Charlie. Carolina being the feminist form of Charles.

In her day it was not appropriate for women of her social standing to publish poetry, and so for a long time her works was published under the pen-name of Mrs Brogen of Brogan. She even kept her writings secret from her husband. She was born in 1776 and died in 1845.

Chevalier-a French order of Knighthood

Didn't lieutenant Uhuru sing this song once in the Ship's Mess on board the Enterprise?

I think it was an episode about a boy named Charlie who grew up all alone on an alien planet, and Capt. Kirk had to teach him about the birds and the bees. kiss2.gif

Ok so I went to a Star Trek Episode Guide website (ain't the Internet great!?!) and the episode I am thinking of is titled "Charlie X" and is one of the first season episodes of the Original Series:

QUOTE
As Charles Evans, the lone survivor of a crashed colonizing expedition to the planet Thasus, comes aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise from the S.S. Antares, but when Captain Ramart of the Antares contacts Kirk about Charlie, the S. S. Antares is suddenly destroyed.

Charlie shows not only a lack of grief for the people who had become his benefactors, but almost an indifference to their deaths. He seems only concerned that his new "family" like and accept him. Unfortunately, teenage hormones and an isolated upbringing make that difficult.

Strange events occur whenever Charlie is angered?he makes Yeoman Rand disappear when she rebuffs his advances, he breaks Spock's legs when the Vulcan tries to discipline him, and he causes injury and discomfort to anyone who he thinks is laughing at him.

Charlie demands that the U.S.S. Enterprise take him to the nearest inhabited planet, but Kirk fears that his uncontrolled temper and dangerous powers will create havoc for any civilization. Charlie gains control of the ship, but Kirk shortly overcomes him. Suddenly, an alien face appears on the bridge. It is that of a Thasian, the race who raised Charlie and gave him his extremely powerful psionic powers.

The Thasians had realized that Charlie has left their planet and thus sent their own starship to intercept the Enterprise. Despite Charlie's tearful pleas to remain, the Thasians take the lonely child back to Thasus. Before they depart, the beings restore the U.S.S. Enterprise and her crew to normal.

That just shows you, be careful of who you pick up on an alien planet. Wouldn't ya like to have powers like that for just a short space of time. Broken legs, disappearing acts, etc. angel_not.gif

What they didn't tell you in the synopsis is that Charlie lost a tri-chess game with Spock, and when he did he became angry and melted the chess pieces. Just goes to show you that having special powers doesn't make you smarter! tongue.gif

Carolina Oliphant was an amazing woman. Scottish music, particularly owes her a great debt. She took lots of older songs, and changed some of the lyrics (the older ones were considered too 'lewd' for polite society!). She published those old folk songs, along with her own poetry - which kept the folk music in the public eye.
