Wee Willie lost his marley, song / Linda Carson & Ruth Carson, singing in English

Wee Willie lost his marley
Wee Willie lost his marley
Wee Willie lost his marley
Down by the Antrim Road

He lost it down the grating
He lost it down the grating
He lost it down the grating
Down by the Antrim Road

Then he got his wee dog
Then he got his wee dog
Then he got his wee dog
Down by the Antrim Road

And he rammed it down the grating
And he rammed it down the grating
And he rammed it down the grating
Down by the Antrim Road

But he didn’t get his marley
But he didn’t get his marley
But he didn’t get his marley
Down by the Antrim Road

Then he got his big stick
Then he got his big stick
Then he got his big stick
Down by the Antrim Road

And he tied it to his wee dog
And he tied it to his wee dog
And he tied it to his wee dog
Down by the Antrim Road

And he rammed it down the grating
And he rammed it down the grating
And he rammed it down the grating
Down by the Antrim Road

But he didn’t get his marley
But he didn’t get his marley
But he didn’t get his marley
Down by the Antrim Road

Then he got some dynamite
Then he got some dynamite
Then he got some dynamite
Down by the Antrim Road

And he rammed it down the grating
And he rammed it down the grating
And he rammed it down the grating
And blew up Antrim Road

But he didn’t get his marley
But he didn’t get his marley
But he didn’t get his marley
Down by the Antrim Road

It was in his blazer pocket
It was in his blazer pocket
It was in his blazer pocket
Down by the Antrim Road.

Notes from Hugh Shields

The air is one commonly used for the song ‘In and out the windows’. (All verses except v. 11 sung in the same way as the first verse).
