How many of you know the words to “The Beefcan Close”?  You dinnae ken the Beefcan Close?  Surely not?  Well, here you go.

This old song from Dundee, ‘The Beefcan Close’ is here brilliantly sung by a completely authentic Dundee voice, that of Annie Watkins on this occasion discretely accompanied by the Foundry Bar Band. I hope you will all benefit from the experience & excellent advice of the author of ‘The Beefcan close’ and remember if you go out on the spree to always first ‘tie yer money tae the tail o’ yer sark’

This montage put a huge smile on our faces as we sang along. We dare you not to!

A collection of Dundee Children’s Street Songs recorded by The Lowland Folk Four, a well-known Dundee folk song group from the sixties, with appearances on Hootnanny, White Heather Club and My Kinda Folk with the legendary Alex Campbell.

We remember a few, slightly differently worded versions of some of these songs that we can’t print here! Do you have any memories of these or other Dundee street songs?
