Sin I Cam By Johnshaven

New Songs Made With Jonner Primary Classes

Welcome to new writing from Johnshaven Primary.

Christine and Ewan and Andy of Ceilidhmakers are working with Johnshaven Primary to write songs and learn about Scottish music and old songs.

The Johnshaven Primary songmaking project is funded by the Scottish Government’s Youth Music Initiative through Creative Scotland. The YMI creates access to high quality music-making opportunities, enables young people to achieve their potential in or through music and supports the development of the sector for the benefit of young people.

JOLLY JOHNNER ROWED HIS BOAT

Tune: Merry Matanzie

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to sea he went to float

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to catch a fish

Two oars he had to row, he couldn’t go fast, he had to go slow

Two oars he had to row, out to catch a fish

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to sea he went to float

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to catch a fish

Was it a salmon, was it a pike, was it an angelfish riding a bike?

Was it a salmon, was it a pike, underneath the waves

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to sea he went to float

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to catch a fish

A fishing rod with string and a hook, and all the time he was reading a book

A fishing rod with string and a hook, a book about catching a shark

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to sea he went to float

Jolly Jonner rowed his boat, out to catch a fish

Johnshaven P4-7

WE SENT HER FOR CHEESE

We sent her for some cheese, oh aye oh aye

We sent her for some cheese, oh aye oh aye

We sent her for some cheese, and she fell and skint her knees

Oh the world must be comin tae an end, oh aye oh aye

We sent her for a toy – she fell on a little boy

We sent her for a chair – she pulled out her own hair

We sent her for a car – she went drinking in a bar

We sent her for a dog – she tripped upon a log

We sent her for a pig – and he wore a ginger wig [oink oink]

We sent her for some butter – and she milked a cow’s pink udder


OUT ON THE ROLLING SEA

Out on the rolling sea, blue and grey and green

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, these colours we have seen

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, each boat has a name

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, we see them comin hame

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, the mighty waves turn tough

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, fierce and rocky and rough

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, scary clouds form

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, there’s a thick black thunderstorm

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, they ken it’s no a game

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll

Out on the rolling sea, that’s why they’re comin hame

Out on the rolling sea, let it roll


LOOK OUT FOR PRESSERS

Stop yer boat ye fisherman

Or I’ll sink ye in the sea

Ye maun come and be a warrior

Jine the King’s Navy

Look oot, there’s pressers aboot

They’re traivellin through the sea

They hae swords and clubs and violent minds

And they’re tryin to capture thee

They’ll pound and sink your boat

And they’ll droon you in the sea

If you dinnae gang alang wi them

Tae jine the King’s Navy

Ah can sclimb a tree

But ah couldna not sclimb a mast

It his nae branches I can haudd

And the boat is sailing fast

Yon muckle ships in the Navy

They cairry lots o guns

They micht gie me a musket

I wish that ah could run

Ah wunner gin ere ah’ll escape

Johnshaven’s hard tae reach

Ah wish that ah could swim awa

Back tae Johnner beach

Stop yer boat ye fisherman

Or I’ll sink ye in the sea

Ye maun come and be a warrior

Jine the King’s Navy

WHO’S ON THE BUS?

I’ve travelled all around this world, from shore to distant shore.

I’ve sampled every pleasure, I could not ask for more.

I’ve shared my deck with kings and queens, it didn’t impress me much

I’ve never seen the equal to the X7 coastal bus.

Yea, yea, yea, yea …

It cruises out from Perthshire where the sun sets on the Tay.

It gathers up the sleepy and takes them on their way.

There’s scientists and lawyers, there’re folks that shout and cuss

There’s every shade of human on the X7 coastal bus

Yea, yea, yea, yea …

I’ve seen the mighty QE2 haul massive loads on board.

I’ve been on double decker planes where cars are even stored

But you can bring your bike and kitchen sink, they never raise a fuss,

You could even bring your elephant on the X7 coastal bus.

Yea, yea …

Ricki likes to rap, Molls likes to play Meep City,

Kiki likes to knit, Babelle likes her horses.

Flash likes fancy unicorns, Lee Lee likes her art

Hans aye likes skating, Meams she likes Little Mix.



Lulu likes her dogs, Har Har plays football

Black Wolf he likes nature, Hay likes to draw.

Mac likes his football, Mimo likes to skip

Mimi likes to dance, Frank likes slime.


Viper lies his skateboard, Flash likes flossing too,

We floss and floss and rainbow floss and you can do it too!!! Yea, yea

Someday this good old world will end, and we’ll reach our final stop,

We’ll look back on the journey and things we liked a lot.

I know that when my time comes, I’ll rise to beat the rush;

Lord take me up to heaven in an X7 coastal bus!

Yea, yea …

THE VALUES SONG

Friends with caring honesty

Take responsibility

Have a laugh respectfully

Fun and creativity

Qua key quacking, Qua key quacking

Qua key quacking, sounds like Latin.

Ooooooh, Ooooooh

They never raise a fuss,

You could even bring your elephant on the X7 coastal bus.

Yea, yea …

You can keep your fancy limousines and racy open cars

You might dine in hipster restaurants or ambient wine bars

For me there’s nothing finer; and it really is a must-

It’s the leather seats and wi-fi on the X7 coastal bus.

Yea, yea …

Some day this good old world will end, and we’ll reach our final stop,

We’ll look back on the journey and things we liked a lot.

I know that when my time comes, I’ll rise to beat the rush;

Bonnie Wee Johnner Hall

Tune (Bonnie wee Jeanie McCall)

Chorus

A fine wee room, a bonnie wee room, is bonnie wee Johnner ha’;

The finest place you’ll ever miss, an never find at a’.

I set out for this ceilidh, in December braw an cauld

It’s nae sae much a place tae go as a way of getting auld.

A carle I met alang the way, was awfy, awfy shy,

He said that he’d been lookin too but coundna mind for why.

He’d tred up Fore and Castle street till his shoes were shilpit bare,

But he hadna hid a sicht of it and now he didna care.

Chorus

Noo there’s mony a place in Johnner that is weel an fine tae be,

The Ship Hotel is couthie but a bitty sweir to see.

The museum’s right ahint you when you’re on the harbor wa’,

But trust me when you’re lookin, it isnae there at a’.

Chorus

You can speir folks where the schuil is or the bowling club sae fine

I’d tell you how tae get there but I dinnae hiv the time.

For naethins where you think it is, an getting there’s a fash,

Forbye the streets can change their names, it’s a waste of time tae ask.

Chorus

Find all the Scots / Doric/ words and underline them

Make a glossary of them saying what you think they might mean

Using these words and any from your packet of Doric words write a sentence describing Johnshaven ….

For example

‘ Bonnie Johnner in the sun is a braw sicht tae see wi its fine schuil and harbor wa.’

Draw a picture to illustrate your sentence.
