Canny at nicht
Bonnie at morn,
Thou’s ower lang in thy bed,
Bonnie at morn.

The sheep are in the meadow,
The kye are in the corn,
Thou’s ower lang in thy bed,
Bonnie at morn.

The bird is in its nest,
And the troot is in the burn,
Thou hinders thy mammy,
At every turn.

We’re a’ laid idle,
Wi’ the keepin’ o’ the bairn,
The lad winna work,
And the lass winna learn.

Footnote: A song with its roots in Northumberland, England, which was first printed in 1822 in “The Northumbrian Minstrelsy”.
