Allee ballee allee ballee bee
Sittin' on your mammy's knee
Greetin' for a wee bawbee
Tae buy some Coulter's candy

Poor wee soul, you're lookin' very thin
A puckle of bones covered o'er wi' skin
Now you're gettin' a wee double chin
Frae eatin' Coulter's candy

Mammy, hand me my thrifty down
Here's auld Coulter comin' round
Wi' a basket on his crown
Sellin' Coulter's candy

Allee ballee allee ballee bee
When you grow up, you'll go tae sea
Makin' pennies for your mammy and me
Tae buy some Coulter's candy

Oor wee Jennie's greetin' tae
Sae whit can puir auld mammie dae
But gie 'em a penny atween them twae
Tae buy some Coulter's candy.
