Cannily Cannily


Cannily, cannily bonnie wee bairnikie
Don’t you cry now my little pet
Hush you a bye now your daddy is sleeping
And it’s not a time for to waken him yet

Soon he’ll go through to the shed for his engine
Soon he’ll be driving his train through the night
Working for pennies for you my dear treasure
So hold your noise honey, your daddy sleeps light


When you are grown you shall have your own engine
The biggest that ever was seen on the line
And all of our neighbours will point to my Johnny
And now he’s the king of the northeastern line
