from Newcastle, on the left; Scottish version on the right

Dance to your daddy,
My little babby,
Dance to your daddy,
My little lamb!

You shall have a fishy
In a little dishy,
You shall have a fishy
When the boat comes in.

Dance to your daddy,
My little babby,
Dance to your daddy,
My little lamb!

You shall have an apple,
You shall have a plum,
You shall have a rattle-basket,
When your dad comes home.

Dance to your daddy,
My bonnie laddy,
Dance to your daddy,
My bonnie lamb.

You shall get a fishy,
In a little dishy,
You shall get a fishy,
When the boat comes in.

You shall get a coatie,
And a pair of breekies,
And you'll get an eggy,
And a bit of ham.

You shall get a pony,
Fit to ride for ony,
And you'll get a whippy,
For to make him gang.

Dance to your daddy,
My bonnie laddy,
Dance to your daddy,
My bonnie lamb.
