I’s the B’y

 

 

I’s the B’y

1. I’s the b’y that builds the boat,
and I’se the b’y that sails her,
I’se the b’y that catches the fish
and takes them home to Liza.
Swing your part-ner, Sally Tibbo,
Swing your partner, Sally Brown.
Fogo, Twillingate, Morton’s Harbor,
all around the circle.

2. I took Lizer to a dance,
and faith, but could she travel.
Ev’ry step that she did take
was up to her knees in gravel.
Swing your part-ner, Sally Tibbo,
Swing your partner, Sally Brown.
Fogo, Twillingate, Morton’s Harbor,
all around the circle.

3. I don’t want your maggoty fish,
that’s no good for winter,
I could buy as good as
that down at Bona Vista.
Swing your part-ner, Sally Tibbo,
Swing your partner, Sally Brown.
Fogo, Twillingate, Morton’s Harbor,
all around the circle.
