Wor Geordie and Bob Johnson byeth lay i' one bed
In a little lodgin' hoose that's doon the shore
Before he'd been an hour asleep a kick from Geordie's fut
Made him waken up te roar i'stead o' snore.

Chorus: Keep yor feet still Geordie Hinney let's be happy for the neet
For Aa may not be se happy thro' the day
So give us that bit confort, keep yor feet still Geordie lad
And divvent drive me bonny dreams away.

Aa dremt thor a dancin' held an' Mary Clark wes there
An' Aa thowt we tript it leetly on the floor
An' Aa prest hor heevin breest te mine when walsin' round the room
That's mair than Aa dor ivver de afore.


Ye knaa the lad sha gans wi', they caall him Jimmy Green
Aa thowt he tried te spoil us i' wor fun
But Aa dremt Aa nailed 'im heavy, an' blacked the big feul's eyes
If Aa'd slept its hard te tell what Aa wad deun.


Aa thowt Aa set hor hyem that neet, content we went alang
Aa kissed hor,lips a hundred times or mair
An' Aa wisht the road wad nivvor end, se happy like was Aa
Aa cud waak a thoosand miles we' Mary there.


Aa dremt Jim Green had left the toon an' left he's luv te me
An Aa thowt the hoose wes foonished wi' the best
An Aa dremt Aa just hed left the Chorch wi' Mary be me side
When yor clumsy feet completely spoilt the rest.
