Allie, ballie, allie ballie bee,
sittin' on yer mammies knee,
creetin' for anither bawbee,

Allie, ballie, allie ballie bee,
when you grow up you'll go to sea,
makin' pennies for yer daddy and me

Mammie gie me ma thrifty doon
here's aul' Coulter comin' roon',
wi' a basket on his croon

but gie them a penny atween them twae,
tae buy mair Coulters candy.
