Johnny Lad
Traditional
I bought a wife in Edinburgh for a bawbee
And then I got a farthing back to buy tobacco wi'

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

As I went walk'n on Sunday and there I saw the Queen
A playing at the football with 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 for you my Johnny lad

The captain o' the other side was scorin' with great style
The Queen she called a policeman and had him thrown in jail

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

Napoleon was an emperor and he ruled the land and sea
He ruled o'er France and Germany, but he didn't rule Jock McGhee

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

Samson was a mighty man and he fought wi' a cuddie's jaw
He fought a thousand battles wearin' crimson flannel draws

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

Now, Johnny is a bonnie lad, he is a lad of mine
I've never had a better lad and I've had twenty-nine

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