Show Me The Way To Wallington

Oh canny man, oh show me the way to Wallington,
I've got a mare to ride, and she's a trick o' galloping,
I hev a lassie, beside, that winna give o'er her walloping,
Oh canny, canny man, oh show me the way to Wallington.

Weel or sorrow betide, I'll hae the way to Wallington.
I've got a mare o' my ain that ne'er gives o'er her galloping,
I hev a lassie, forbye, that I canna keep frae walloping
Oh canny, canny man, oh, tell me the way to Wallington.

Sandy, keep on the road, that's the way to Wallington,
Soon he reached Bingfield Kame, and by the banks of Hallington,
Through by Bavington Hall, and in ye go to Wallington,
Whether ye gallop or trot, ye're on the road to Wallington.

Off, like the wind, he went, clattering on to Wallington,
Soon he reached Bingfield Kame, and passed the banks o'Hallington,
O'er by Bavington Syke, the mare couldna trot for galloping,
Now my dear lassie I'll see, for I'm on my way to Wallington.
