I'm looking for the lyrics to a song 'Bonnie Wee Charlie' that I'm told was sung by Gaby McArdle. My gran, who was by no means a singer, passed away last week and this was always her one and only party piece. If anyone could help with finding lyrics to this song I can't express how much it would mean to me to be able to pass them on to aunts and uncles. Thank you in advance!

For the sake of completeness, here they are:

(Harry Lauder & Alec Melville)

I'm Charlie MacNeil and I like London weel,
But the lassies astonish me fairly.
Wherever I go they are yelling "Hul-lo--o-o!
Here comes bonnie wee Charlie:"
They wrinkle my clothes and they tramp on my toes,
For they're all of them trying to kiss me;
And one of them went, and for poison she sent,
Because she happen to miss me.

The lassies all tickle and tease me,
Hug, and canoodle and squeeze me;
they give me a cheer and they call metheir "dear"
I'm their "Bonnie Wee Charlie"

Verse 2
One nicht after dark, I went for a lark,
I thought it was only my duty;
But the lassies I met I can never forget,
They were all thunderstruck at my beauty.
But when they drew near I was shaking with fear;
There was one they called Mary McCluskers,
In trying to kiss me one the kisser, ye see,
Nearly pull'd out the half of my whiskers.


Verse 3

One nicht at a ball I went intae a hall,
And they asked me to join in the Lancers.
Some fellah did roar, "Leave your feet at the door,
If ye want to be one of the dancers!"
The lassies you see, they were dancing with me,
And the fellahs they kicked up a shindy;
They broke up the ball and they emptied the hall,
And then emptied me oot o' the windy.
