Lots Of Fish In Bonavist' Harbour


'Lots of fish in Bonavist' Harbour
Lots of fish right in around here
Boys and girls are fishin' together
Forty-five from Carbonear.

Oh... catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Swing around this one, dance around she
Catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Diddle dum this one, diddle dum dee.

Uncle George got up in the morning
He got up in a hell of a tear
'Ripped the seat right out of his britches
Now he's got ne'er pair to wear.

Oh... catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Swing around this one, dance around she
Catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Diddle dum this one, diddle dum dee.

Sally's the pride of Cat Harbour
She ain't been swung since 'way last year
Drinkin rum and wine and cassie
What the boys brought home from St. Pierre.

Oh... catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Swing around this one, dance around she
Catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Diddle dum this one, diddle dum dee.

Sally's got a bouncin' new baby
Father said that he didn't care
For she got that from the feller from Fortune
What was down here fishin' the year.

Oh... catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Swing around this one, dance around she
Catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Diddle dum this one, diddle dum dee.

Sally goes to Church every Sunday
Not for to sing nor for to hear
But to see the feller from Fortune
What was down here fishin' the year.

Oh... catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Swing around this one, dance around she
Catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Diddle dum this one, diddle dum dee.

There's lots of fish in Bonavist' Harbour
Lots of fishermen in around here
Swing your partner, Jimmy Joe Jacobs
I'll be home in the spring o' the year.

Oh... catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Swing around this one, dance around she
Catch ahold this one, catch ahold that one
Diddle dum this one, diddle dum dee.
