How can I make a tidy dance
How can I dance a Bonny Reel
How can I make a tidy dance
The pin went from the hem of my coat

How can I make a tidy dance
How can I dance a Bonny Reel
How can I make a tidy dance
The pin went from the hem of my coat

The pin went and that put me astray
The pin went from the hem of my coat
The pin went and that put me astray
The pin went from the hem of my coat

The pin went and that put me astray
The pin went from the hem of my coat
The pin went and that put me astray
The pin went from the hem of my coat
