Lyrics

And wi’ you, and wi’ you, and wi’ you, my Johnny lad
I’ll dance the buckles off my shoes wi’ you my Johnny lad

I bought a wife in Edinburgh for a bawbie
And then I got a farthing back to buy terbaccer wi’

And wi’ you, and wi’ you, and wi’ you, my Johnny lad
I’ll dance the buckles off my shoes wi’ you my Johnny lad

As I was out a-walkin’, I chanced to see the Queen
She was playin’ football wi’ the lads on Glasgow green

And wi’ you, and wi’ you, and wi’ you, my Johnny lad
I’ll dance the buckles off my shoes wi’ you my Johnny lad

The captain ‘o the other side was scorin’ in great style
The queen, she called a policeman, and clapped him in the jail

And wi’ you, and wi’ you, and wi’ you, my Johnny lad
I’ll dance the buckles off my shoes wi’ you my Johnny lad

Samson was a mighty man, and he fought wi’ the cuddy’s jaw
He fought a score of battles wearing crimson flannel drawers

And wi’ you, and wi’ you, and wi’ you, my Johnny lad
I’ll dance the buckles off my shoes wi’ you my Johnny lad

Now Johnny was a bonny lad, until they took him in
He had an operation, and now they call him Mary

And wi’ you, and wi’ you, and wi’ you, my Johnny lad
I’ll dance the buckles off my shoes wi’ you my Johnny lad
