Lyrics

For as I gaed doun the Overgate
I met a bonnie wee lass
For she winked to me wi' the tail of her e'e
As I went walkin' past

Rickey-doo-dum-die, doo-dum-die
Rickey-dickey-doo-dum-day

I asked her what her name might be
She said, "Jemima Rose
And I live in Blueberry Lane
At the fit o' the Beefcan Close"

Rickey-doo-dum-die, doo-dum-die
Rickey-dickey-doo-dum-day

I asked her what was her landlady's name
She said it was Mrs. Bruce
And wi' that she invited me
To come awa tae the hoose

Rickey-doo-dum-die, doo-dum-die
Rickey-dickey-doo-dum-day

As we went up the windin' stair
And it bein' lang and dark
For I slipped my money through my inside pooch
And I tied it to the tail o' my sark

Rickey-doo-dum-die, doo-dum-die
Rickey-dickey-doo-dum-day

I scarcely had got in the hoose
When she took me tae her room
It was there we pulled a bottle oot
And then we baith set doun

Rickey-doo-dum-die, doo-dum-die
Rickey-dickey-doo-dum-day

That a' nicht lang I dreamt I was lyin'
In the airms o' Jemima Rose
But when I waukened I was lyin' on my back
At the fit o' the Beefcan Close

Rickey-doo-dum-die, doo-dum-die
Rickey-dickey-doo-dum-day

Come a' ye jolly plooman lads
That gang oot for a lark
Just slip your money through your inside pooch
And tie it to the tail o' your sark

Rickey-doo-dum-die, doo-dum-die
Rickey-dickey-doo-dum-day
