Dance To Your Daddy

Dance to your daddy, my little laddie
Dance to your daddy, my little man

Thou should have a fish and thou should have a fin
Thou should have a codlin when the boat comes in
Thou should have a haddock baked in a pan
Dance to your daddy, my little man

Dance to your daddy, my little laddie
Dance to your daddy, my little man

When thou art a man and come to take a wife
Thou should wed a lass and love her all your life
She should be your lass and thou should be her man
Dance to your daddy, my little man

Dance to your daddy, my little laddie
Dance to your daddy, my little man

Thou should have a fish and thou should have a fin
Thou should have a codlin when the boat comes in
Thou should have a haddock baked in a pan
Dance to your daddy, my little man

Dance to your daddy, my little laddie
Dance to your daddy, my little man

Thou should have a fish and thou should have a fin
Thou should have a cuddling when the boat comes in
Thou should have a haddock baked in a pan
Dance to your daddy, my little man

Traditional arranged by Andy Irvine

“When The Boat Comes In” (or “Dance Ti Thy Daddy”) is a traditional English folk song, originating in North East England.
