116             Music of the Waters.
There is another song to the tune of *' The bonny Pit Laddie," named " The bonny Keel Laddie ":
" My bonny keel laddie, my canny keel laddie, My bonny keel laddie for me, O ! He sits in his keel as black as the deil, And he brings the white money to me, O !
" Hae ye seen owt o' my canny man, And are ye sure he's weel, O ! He's gaen o'er land wiv a stick in his hand, To help to moor the keel, O !
" The canny keel laddie, the bonny keel laddie, The canny keel laddie for me, O ! He sits in his huddock and claws his bare buttock, And brings the white money to me, O !"
THE BONNY PIT LADDIE.
