coulter’s candy lyrics – donovan

ally bally bally bally be
sittin’ on yer mamy’s knee
greetin’ for a wee baw bee
tae buy some coulter’s candy

poor wee baim yer lookin’ awfull thin,
a’ yer jaw is aw drawn in
could it be wi sookin’
wi sooking the coulter’s candy

i had a little nut tree
nothing would it bear
but a silver nut meg
and a golden pear.

the queen of spain’s daughter
came to visit me
and all on account
of my little nut tree

ally bally bally bally be
sittin’ on yer mamy’s knee
greetin’ for a wee baw bee
tae buy some coulter’s candy
