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.

repeat chorus.

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.

repeat chorus.
