My Aunt Jane She Called Me in

My aunt Jane she called me in, song / Eileen Keaney, singing in English

My aunt Jane she called me in, song / Eileen Keaney, singing in English

My aunt Jane she called me in
She made me tea in her wee tin
A penny bap
Sugar on the top
Three black balls out of her wee shop

My aunt Jane she called me in
She made me tea in her black tin
She called me back
I wouldn’t go
She shut the door on my wee toe.
