The only thing ah can think o' is it is an English wummans name,as in Maddie Prior.


Up the Noran Wate

In by Inglismaddy,

Annie's got a bairnie

That hasna got a daddy.

Some say it's Tammas's,

An' some say its Chay's;

An' naebody expec'it it,

Wi' Annie's quite ways.

Up the Noran Water

The bonnie little mannie

Is dandled an' cuddled close

By Inglismaddy's Annie.

Wha the bairnie's daddy is

The lassie never says ;

But some think it's Thammas's,

An' some think it's Chay's.

Up the Noran Water

The country folk are kind ;

An' wha the bairnie's daddy is

They dinna muckle mind.

But oh ! the bairn at Annie's breist,

The love in Annie's e'e--

They mak me wish wi' a' my might

The lucky lad was me !
