GUEST,Jim I Lyr Add: Sleepytoon / Sleepy Toon (Norman Kennedy) (43) RE: Lyr Add: (Hiring Fair) Sleepytoon 02 Mar 06

from Guest: First verse - "I gaed up tae Insch tae fee"

                         Chorus - "An sing airy irrity addy
                                  And sing airy irrity an".

Thanks Guest. I've been singing that for years but when I listen to the original again it is indeed "Insch tae fee". The version I have however is slightly different in the chorus. "iry" is closer than "airy" (which I assume rhymes with fairy?)and it does sound to me like iddity rather than irrity - but surely none of that (with the exception of the name) really matters.

Malcolm; "Willie Clark, not Willie Scott." Sorry my mistake. I have been trying to give sources to the songs in my book and I 'oopsed!' that one. Normally I go through as many sources as possible to try to get the right info but I was in a bit of a hurry with this one.

As to the tune I only have an old cassette which I learned the song from - no dots I'm afraid. I am working on putting it into Cakewalk - but its a slow job
