The Fish Of The Sea - Canadian Traditional/Folk Song Midi and Lyrics

The Fish Of The Sea
Canadian Traditional/Folk Song
Lyrics

Come all you young sailormen, listen to me
I'll sing you a song of the fish in the sea,
And it's...

   Refrain
   Windy weather boys, stormy weather, boys
   When the wind blows we're all together, boys
   Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
   Jolly sou'wester, boys, steady she goes.

Up jumps the eel with his slippery tail,
Climbs up aloft and reefs the topsail,
And it's...

Then up jumps the shark with his nine rows of teeth
Saying, "You eat the dough boys, and I'll eat the beef!"
And it's...

Up jumps the lobster with his heavy claws,
Bites the main boom right off by the jaws!
And it's...

Up jumps the halibut, lies flat on the deck
He says, "Mister Captain, don't step on my neck!"
And it's...

Up jumps the herring, the king of the sea,
Saying, "All other fishes, now you follow me!"
And it's...

Up jumps the codfish with his chuckle-head,
He runs out up forward and throws out the lead!
And it's...

Up jumps the whale... the largest of all,
"If you want any wind, well, I'll blow ye a squall!"
And it's...
