On Grandpa's Knee lyrics

Grandpa, Grandpa,

Diddle me on your knee.

I'm your diddley-dumplin

Swinging on a Swee.

Sing a bonnie ballant

O pownies black and broun,

Shoggle me frae side to side

Syne shoggle up and doun.

Grandpa's knee's a cannie naig

Jouglin owre the muir

And I'm a braw wee leddy ridin to the fair.
