Weel may the keel row, the keel row, the keel row
Weel may the keel row that my wee laddie's in.

As I came through Sandgate, I heard a lassie sing
Weel may the keel row…

Wha' s like my Johnnie, sae leish, sae blythe, sae bonnie
He's foremost 'mang the mony keel lads o' the Tyne
Weel may the keel row…
