Dance to your daddy
my bonnie laddie,
dance to your daddy,
to your mammy sing;

You shall have a fishy
In a little dishy,
you shall have a fishy
When the boat comes in.

Here's your mother comin'
like a canny woman,
here comes your father,
drunk, he canna stand.

Dance to your daddy
my bonnie laddie,
dance to your daddy
my little lad.

You shall have a fishie
on a little dishie,
you shall have a fishie
when the boat comes in.

Dance to your daddy
my bonnie laddie,
dance to your daddy
my little lamb.

You shall have a coatie
and a pair of breekies,
you shall have a whippie
and some bread and jam.
