Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen
When I was a child, a tiny wee child,
My mother said to me,
Come see the Northern lights my child,
They're bright as they can be.
She called them the heavenly dancers,
Merry dancers in the sky
I'll never forget that wonderful sight,
They made the heavens bright.
Oh the Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen
Seem home sweet home to me.
The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen
Are what I long to see
I've been a wand'rer all of my life
And many's a sight I've seen
Godspeed the day,
When I'm on my way
To my home in Aberdeen.
I've wandered in many far off lands,
Traveled many a mile
I've missed the folk I've cherished most,
The joy of a friendly smile
It warms up the heart of the wand'rer,
The clasp of a welcoming hand
To greet me when I return,
Home to my own native land.
