Coulter's Candy

Coulter's Candy

Ally bally, ally bally bee,
Sittin on yer mammy’s knee
Greetin for a wee bawbee
Tae buy some Coulter’s Candy.

Willie wept baith lang and sair,
Till he got a penny tae share
Noo he’s tumblin doon the stair
Tae buy some Coulter’s Candy.

Poor wee Annie was greetin tae,
What could poor auld Mammy dae?
But gie them a penny atween them twae
Tae buy mair Coulter’s Candy.

Oor wee Jeannie wis lookin affa thin,
A rickle o banes covered ower wi skin
Noo she’s gettin a wee double chin
Sookin Coulter’s Candy.

Here comes Coulter doon the street,
The man the bairns aa like tae meet
His big black bag it hauds a treat
It’s full o Coulter’s Candy.
