Sonny Lyrics

A sailor gave his sonny 

Nearly half a pint of money 

And sent him out to buy a ton of coal; 

But he met a poor old miser 

Who told him it were wiser 

To bury all his money in a hole. 


A sailor gave his sonny 

Nearly half a pint of money 

And told him he should buy a suit of clothes; 

But he saw a pretty maiden 

With all kinds of posies laden, 

And he gave her all his money for a rose. 


Then the sailor gave his sonny 

Nearly half a pint of money 

To buy a little garden and a house; 

But he found him the next day, 

In a shop on Yesler Way, 

A-buying cheese and crackers for a mouse.
