Dingle dingle dousy

Dingle dingle dousy
The cat's in the well
The dog's awa to Musselbro
Tae buy the bairn a bell.

Greet, greet ma bairnie,
Ye'll get a a siller bell,
And gin ye dinna faster greet
I'll keep it tae mysel'.

Rymour Club version:

Dingle, dingle, doozy
The cat's at the well
A' the birds in Edinburgh
Canna ring a bell.

Greet, greet, bairnie
And I'll gie ye a bell;
If ye dinna greet, bairnie,
I'll keep it to mysel'.
