Jesmond Pic-Nic
Tune: Saly Cum Up

The day was fine, aw mind ful well,
When lots away frae work did steal,
An' swore they'd join the merry reel,
At Jesmond Monster Pic-Nic.
Thor wes croods upon the green,
An' thoosands might be seen
Alang the Park an'roond the Dene,
At Jesmond Monster Pic Nic.

Jiggin away,- kiss i' the ring,
Lasses to yor laddies cling,
An' lissen while i' praise aw sing
Ov Jesmond Monster Pic Nic.

When i' the Park, wi' joyful shoot,
We knockt the greet football aboot,
Its guts, aw sure, gat kickt an' cloot
Frae the lads at Jesmond Pic-Nic.
Amid hearty laffs and squeels,
Blithe lads cockt up thor heels,
An' lowpt the powl,--an' cowpt thor creels,
At Jesmond Monster pic-Nic.

I' rings where lads thor lasses smack
Wi' kisses like a pistol's crack,
Mony a Jenny gat a Jack
At Jesmond Monster Pic-Nic.
Bonny lasses--like queen's there,
Wi' posies i' thor hair,
Had ringlets that wad myek ye stare,
At Jesmond MonsterPic-Nic.

Wor Geordy te wes on the spot,
Te join each dance amang the lot,
Man, what a cumley lass aw got
At Jesmond Monster Pic-Nic.
Fine quadreels wes a' the go,
We shuffled heel an' toe,
An' fairly lickt aud Billy's show,
At Jesmond Monster Pic-Nic.

The Banquet Hall we went te see,
An' feed upon spice loaf an' tea,
Refreshments o' the best degree
We squash'd at Jesmond Pic-Nic.
Then lads set thor lasses hyem,
Wi' dancin aw wes lyem,
Still like the rest aw did the syem,
That neet frae Jesmond Pic-Nic.

It's interesting how Scots is found in Northumbria, South Scotland and Ulster - indicating a common ancestry (with variations) to the peoples of these places.

Has anyone done any research into this peculiarly north British phenonemon.
