I am looking for the words to "Our Sal's New Bonnet". It is a traditional Yorkshire monologue along the lines of Albert and the Lion.

Anyone know the words?

From Poems in Sheffield Dialect(pdf):

The Noo Bonnitt

Ahr Sal's gorra noo bonnitt
Wee-ya-rearther roersas onnitt
Una feather 'angin' reight dahn t'back
Ahr Sal wenter Chuch on Sundi
Un t' parson preearched un preearched
Until ee kunt preearch enni longer
So ee preearched on ahr Sal's noo bonnitt.
Sal groo bold, she stood oop un sed
"Tha's a bald eeard, nowt innitt, un nowt onnitt
Wud tha like a feather from mi noo bonnitt?"


The New Bonnet
Translation

Our Sal has got a new bonnet,
With a wreath of roses upon it,
And a feather hanging right down the back,
Our Sal went to Church on Sunday,
And the Parson preached and preached
Until he could not preach any longer.
So he preached on our Sal's new bonnet.
Our Sal grew bold, she stood up and said:
'You have a bald head, nothing in it and nothing on it,
Would you like a feather from my new bonnet?'


I can't find anything more on it (it appears on a sheffield forum as well, but I think a copy from the same source); perhaps SteveG knows something about it.

my Grandad told me this in the 1970's, he lived in Crewe, not far from the Derbyshire border. it's great to see all the different variations

A sin ah Sal's new bonnit
Tis a reet un, no mistack
Wreath o' roses on it
An a feather, reet up back
Ah Sal went church on Sunday
An the people stood up an stared
An the parson said in is temper
'Tis a place of worship, not a fayre...'
At this ah Sal grew angry
And to the Parson said
'Shut thy clatter, thy with a bald ead
Nauwt on it, nauwt in,
Doth want a feather from my bonnit?'

Have you seen our Sal's new bonnet. Its a lovely one
It's got roses around it and a feather stuck in the back.
Our Sal went to church the other Sunday. How folk did stare.
Preacher stands up and says this is a place for worship not for flowers.
Out Sal stands up and says. Thy head is bald there is nothing in it and nothing on it.
Would you like a rose out of my new bonnet.

I know this Yorkshire bonnet dialect poem as belonging to MARY rather than to SAL !!!! It can be found on a most wonderful collection of Yorkshire dialect verse on a C.D. or tape and can be purchased (on line or by phone or letter ) from the Yorkshire Dialect Society for a few pounds only. The whole C.D. was recorded live on stage ( by wonderful readers ) some years ago at the Ilkley Literary Festival. All the details of this and many other publications of the same type can be found on Google....YORKSHIRE DIALECT SOCIETY. The title of this particular collection is ' FIRST O'SORT ' .

I realise it is easy to make false claims in respect of tapes, C.D s etc but I cannot speak too highly of the range and quality of these voices and the quality of the wonderful Yorkshire verses too. I would urge you to buy one and enjoy many happy hours listening , smiling and perhaps weeping at some of the contributions too . It really is a wonderful C D and you will treasure your copy as do I . I would love to know if you enjoyed it if you buy a copy.

Best wishes.

Our Sal's New Bonnet

Hasta seen our Sal's new bonnet, it's a stunner an no mistek
Gorra a wreath o roses round it an a feather stuck reet down't back

Our Sal went to chuch on Sunday an't parson seys "t'aint a flower
show missis it's a place o warship this".

Our Sal got reet ratty an wi a bit o pluck stood up an said
"parson tha head's bald, tha's got now in it an nowt on it, wouldsta
like a feather outa my new bonnet/"


I learned this from Sheila Dutton at Anston Primary School, (12 miles from Sheffield) in what was the West Riding, about 65 years ago.

Cheers

'As ta seen ah Sarah's bonnet,
It's a stunner an' no mistak,
Gorra wreath o' roses on it,
An' a feather darn 'er back'
Yeller ribbons an' fine laces,
An' a cock-a-doodle-doo,
An' rahnd her bonny face,
A sprig o' posies, blue.

Last Sunday, when she went to t' Church,
T'parson couldn't say his text,
An' poor owd Widow Grundon,
spluttered "Pray, what next!"
T'lads laughed at one another,
T'lasses snittered i' their glee,
An' soon t'whole congregation
'Ad 'er bonnet i' their ee.

Then the parson said, most kindly,
That "If his erring Sister wished
to find her way to glory,
She'd not put on her head
A whole conserv-a-tory".

Na, our Sarah's nooan short o' wit.
She jumped up in a minute.
"Parson" she said, "thy heead's bare,
Tha's nowt in it, an' nowt on it.
Suppose tha puts some flowers there,
Like them 'ats i' my bonnet!"

I learnt this from my grandmother, who was a broadly spoken Yorkshire mill lass in her youth in the early 20th. century, back in the 1940s.

From my Yorkshire granny Nell, born in Leeds in 1890.

Oor Mary's gorra new bonnet.

An' all't people gawped and stared
T' see oor Mary in it.
Paason stood up an' said
'This is a place o'worship
Norra flower show'.
Oor Mary said
'Thy 'ed's bald. nowt in it, nowt on it,
Would'sta like a feather outta my new bonnet?'
