GIVE THE LASSES WHAT YOU WILL, NOT GIVE THEM BRANDY. AKA and see "Sugarcandy," "Suggar Candie," "Sweet as Sugar Candy," "We'll all away to Sunniside." English, Reel (whole time). England, Northumberland. G Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in the c. 1812 music manuscript collection of Northumbrian musician John Bell [1] (1783-1864). Researher Matt Seattle explains the the title comes from the chorus of a song that appears in another of Bell's manuscripts.


Up the bank to Winlaton, the lasses booses brandy;
Old wives booses gin, the lasses booses brandy.

Chorus:
Old wives booses gin, the lasses booses brandy;
Give the lasses what ye will, but dinna give them brandy.

Will you go to Sunnyside, to Mr Gare's garden?
You may eat till you be full, and need not pay a farden.

Chorus
