Stottin doon the waal

Today is Friday pay day and the fyece will soon be off
And aa'm glad the week is ended theres nae doot
For we'll ride and draw wer pay and then we'll de away
Get wur dinner put wur clathes on and gan oot

And its stottin doon the waal
Stottin doon the waal
The Frida neet is never quite complete
If Aa divvent get me sup
AndAa'm feeinl me way alang hyeme
By stottin doon the ropeworks waal

Now a gaan doon tae the corner
And there a meets the lads
And we're gan inte the penny wet fur a sup
And we'll gets oot the bones
And a tanner start tae flee
Fur when yer suppin ye never knaa yer luck

And its stottin doon the waal
Stottin doon the waal
The Frida neet is never quite complete
If Aa divvent get me sup
AndAa'm feeinl me way alang hyeme
By stottin doon the ropeworks waal

But later oan again when we're feelin wersels lowsed
We take wursels doon tae the Mem
As we prance aroond the floor
Theres many a chance tae score
And roon the neet off taen the tott lass heyme


And its stottin doon the waal
Stottin doon the waal
The Frida neet is never quite complete
If Aa divvent get me sup
AndAa'm feeinl me way alang hyeme
By stottin doon the ropeworks waal

Last Frida Aa did weel wie little nancy broon
Ya know her father works in Fowerth West
And as Aa was standin in the door
and a thowt te de a bit more
he opened it up and ye'll guess where Aa went next

Aye He sent iss
stottin alang the waal
Stottin alang the waal
The Frida neet is never quite complete
If Aa divvent get me sup
AndAa'm feeinl me way alang hyeme
By stottin doon the ropeworks waal


By chance I was almost done when I came upon this site Northumberland anthology   

The words seem to vary slightly from what my ear was picking up but not enough to bother me so I went with their words. Hope this is of help.

Could someone translate that into English, please?
Probably wouldn't be singable in English, but I'm
interested.

Stottin doon the waal

Today is Friday pay day and the face will soon be off (Coal face)
And I'm glad the week is ended there's no doubt
For we'll ride and draw or pay and then we'll be away
Get our dinner put our clothes on and go out

And its bouncing down the wall
bouncing down the wall
The Friday night is never quite complete
If I don't get me sup(drink)
And I'm feeling my way along home
By bouncing down the ropeworks wall

Now a go down to the corner
And there I meets the lads
And we're go into the penny wet fur a sup (Bar room for a drink)
And we'll gets out the bones (dice)
And the tanners start tae fly    (Money starts to fly)
For when your drinking you never know your luck

And its bouncing down the wall
bouncing down the wall
The Friday night is never quite complete
If I don't get me sup(drink)
And I'm feeling my way along home
By bouncing down the ropeworks wall

But later on again when we're feeling ourselves lowsed (Loosed released or finished work)
We take ourselves down tae the Mem (Must be the name of a dancehall)
As we prance around the floor
There's many a chance to score
And round the night off taking a girl home

And its bouncing down the wall
bouncing down the wall
The Friday night is never quite complete
If I don't get me sup(drink)
And I'm feeling my way along home
By bouncing down the ropeworks wall

Last Friday I did well with little nancy brown
You know her father works in Fowerth West (Name of a pit or seam)
And as I was standing in the door
and a thought to do a bit more
he opened it up and you'll guess where I went next

Aye He sent me
And its bouncing down the wall
bouncing down the wall
The Friday night is never quite complete
If I don't get me sup(drink)
And I'm feeling my way along home
By bouncing down the ropeworks wall


Hope this helps Dave

The Penny Wet was the name of a pub in Walls end.

Bones were dominoes and tanners were old style silver coins worth six pence in old money.

Thank you George I wasn't sure about penny wet if it was a place or a drink,in Kilsyth bones were dice so I suspected a bit of gambling.

Fowerth West; 4th West, refers to a 'District' - a working area in a colliery usually synonymous with a specific coal face, but also including all the associated services with that coal face, e.g. roadways, haulage, ventilation, etc. which would be extended as the coal face itself advanced into the unworked area.

Districts would be established in any workable coal seam (of which there might be several at different levels in the same colliery).

Johnny told me recently that the "Mem" is the Memorial Hall in Wallsend, which functioned as a workers' canteen during the week and as a dance hall at weekends.
