Bonny Gateshead Lass

Aa’ll warrant you’ve never seen me lass, hor name Aa cannot mention,
for fear you’ll gan and tell her how Aa like her so Aa dee!
Well it’s just for lads and lasses for to whisper their affection.
The bonniest lass in Gateshead’s bonny face has bothered me.
The bonniest lass in Gateshead’s bonny face has bothered me.

Well the first time Aa saw her, well Aa thought Aa didn’t know her,
but Aa’m sure Aa’d seen her face before, Aa couldn’t think of where.
Her blue eyes met mine in passing, up the High Street in the morning,
and her look was so entrancing, that me heart was mine nee mair.
Her look was so entrancing, that me heart was mine nee mair.

Well Aa didn’t see her for a week then one neet at the Bridge End,
Aa stamped upon her gown, and the gathers they come away.
She towld us Aa was clumsy and Aa said that Aa was sorry,
and Aa humbly begged her pardon, Aa was licked for what to say.
Aa humbly begged her pardon, Aa was licked for what to say.

So Aa walked on by her side just as if Aa had a right to dee,
the conversation first was shy but then it turned first class.
We taalked aboot the weather and she mentioned that her father
was a puddler down at Hawks’, oh me bonny Gateshead lass.
A puddler down at Hawks’, oh me bonny Gateshead lass.

She mentioned confidentially that her uncle was a grocer,
and her mother’s, father’s, cousin was a fiddler on the shore.
She talked so nice and pleasant and she looked both sweet and pleasant,
Aa thowt Aa’d never a seen a lass so charming like before.
Aa thowt Aa’d never a seen a lass so charming like before.

She says her mother keeps a shop and sells hot pies and candy,
and her brother he’s a cobbler in the high part of the town.
Now she was a dressmaker and we got on so well together,
that Aa blessed Aa’d been so awkward as to stand upon her gown.
Aa blessed I’d been so awkward as to stand upon her gown.

Aa made her laugh and slap me lug wi’ talking lots of nonsense.
But bless you when you’re courting well there’s nowt so good’ll pass.
Aa asked her would she be me lass and Aa’d take her out on Sunday.
To my delight she says “Aa might” me bonny Gateshead lass.
To my delight she says “Aa might” me bonny Gateshead lass.
