Ten O'Clock Is Ringing

  • (Trad)

    Ten o'clock is ringing, Mother, let me out
    My lad is standing waiting to take me out a walk
    First he gave me apples, then he gave me pears
    Then he gave me a sixpence to kiss him on the stair

    My lad's a bonny lad, my lad's a dandy
    My lad's a bonny lad, sweet as sugar candy

    (as sung by Jeannie Robertson)

  • [1984:] A charming little kid's rhyme which Jeannie learned in the Middle School of the Gallowgate in Aberdeen. (Hamish Henderson, notes Jeannie Robertson 'Up the Dee and Doon the Don')
