Here is a verse from 'Little Chance' a Geordie mining song
One day when I was walkin doon by the Fellin' Shore
I met wi Jontys dowter she was stannin at the door
She says te me will ye hev a cup of tea
And eftor the way I spent that neet I swore I'd Dee it again
I put me hand upon hoe calfs titty fa-la, titty fa-lay
She says divent Dee things be halves titty fa-la, titty fa-lay.......
Now I keep hor company and she's very fond of me
And I'm a bugger for tea titty fa-la, titty fa-lay........
