KEEP YOUR FEET STILL GEORDIE HINNY

Oh Geordie and Bob Johnson
Well they both lay in one bed
In a little lodging house down by the shore
And they hadn't have been an hour asleep
When a kick from Geordie’s foot
Made him waken up to roar instead of snore

So keep your feet still Geordie Hinny
Let’s be happy through the night
For I may not be so happy through the day
So give me that bit comfort
Keep your feet still Geordie lad
And don’t drive my bonnie dreams away

Well I dreamt there was a dancing held
And Mary Clark was there
And I thought we tripped it lightly round the floor
And I pressed her heaving breast to mine
Whilst waltzing round the room
Well that’s more than I’ve dare ever do before

So keep your feet still Geordie Hinny
Let’s be happy through the night
For I may not be so happy through the day
So give me that bit comfort
Keep your feet still Geordie lad
And don’t drive my bonnie dreams away

Well do you know the lad she gans with
They call him Jimmy Green
And I thought he’d try to spoil our bit of fun
Well I dreamt I nailed him heavy
And I blacked the big fool’s eyes
If I’d slept it’s hard to tell what I’d have done

So keep your feet still Geordie Hinny
Let’s be happy through the night
For I may not be so happy through the day
So give me that bit comfort
Keep your feet still Geordie lad
And don’t drive my bonnie dreams away

Well I dreamt I took her home that night
Content we went along
And I kissed her lips a hundred times or more
And I wished the road would never end
So happy like was I
I could walk a thousand miles with Mary there

So keep your feet still Geordie Hinny
Let’s be happy through the night
For I may not be so happy through the day
So give me that bit comfort
Keep your feet still Geordie lad
And don’t drive my bonnie dreams away

Well I dreamt Jim Green had left the town
And left his love to me
And I thought the house was furnished with the best
And I dreamt I just had left the church
With Mary by my side
When your clumsy feet completely spoiled the rest

So keep your feet still Geordie Hinny
Let’s be happy through the night
For I may not be so happy through the day
So give me that bit comfort
Keep your feet still Geordie lad
And don’t drive my bonnie dreams away

(Trad. arr. Weihrauch / Miller)
