Bonny at Morn
Last updated: 22.04.17

This traditional Northumberland song has a most beautiful melody and is one which I very much enjoy singing the bass part with the Tyneside Maritime Chorus. Quoting from the Northumbrian Minstrelsy (1882), Bonny at Morn gives a pretty picture of family life. The baby awakes a little too early, but the big lad and the big lass are loathe to rise; hence the interjaculatory phrase "Thou's ower lang in thy bed" in the midst of the song.
Bonny at Morn is given in John Stokoe's Songs and Ballads of Northern England (1893).
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
