Traditional Songs of Scotland

Coulters Candy

Ally, bally, ally bally bee,
Sittin' on yer Mammy's knee
Greetin' for anither bawbee,
Tae buy mair Coulter's candy.

Ally, bally, ally bally bee,
When you grow up you'll go to sea,
Makin' pennies for your Daddy and me,
Tae buy mair Coulter's Candy.

Mammy gie me ma thrifty doon
Here's auld Coulter comin' roon,
Wi' a basket on his croon,
Selling Coulter's Candy.

Little Annie's greetin' tae,
Sae whit can puir wee Mammy dae?
But gie them a penny atween them twae,
Tae buy mair Coulter's Candy.

Poor wee Jeannie's lookin' affa thin,
A rickle o' banes covered ow'r wi' skin,
Noo she's gettin' a double chin,
Wi' sookin' Coulter's Candy.
