Cannily, Cannily (Ewan MacColl) Cannily, cannily, my lal bairnikie Divn't tha cry, my lal pet Whisht at thy greetin' Your daddy is sleeping It's not time to waken him yet Soon he'll be gan thro' the shed for his engine Soon he'll be driving his train through the night Working for pennies for you, my lal treasure So had the noise, hinnie, your daddy sleeps light When tha art grown tha shalt have tha own engine The biggest that ever was seen on the line And aal o' wor neighbors will point to my Johnnie And knaa he's the king o' the North Eastern Line Copyright Stormking Music sung by MacColl on "British Industrial Ballads" SOF
