I'se the B'y

I'se the b'y that builds the boat and
I'se the b'y that sails her and
I'se the b'y that catches the fish and
Brings 'em home to Liza

Chorus:
Hip-yer-partner Sally Tibbo
Hip-yer-partner Sally Brown
Fogo, Twillingate, Morton's Harbour,
All around the circle

Sods and rinds to cover your flake,
Cake and tea for supper
Cod fish in the spring of the year,
Fried in maggoty butter

Chorus

I don't want your maggoty fish
They're no good for winter
Well I can buy as good as that,
Way down in Bonavista!

Chorus

I took Liza to a dance,
As fast as she can travel,
And every step that she could take,
Was up to her knees in gravel

Chorus

Susan White she's outta sight,
Her petticoat won't support her,
Well old Sam Oliver in the dark,
He kissed her in the corner!

Chorus

I'se the b'y that builds the boat and
I'se the b'y that sails her and
I'se the b'y that catches the fish and
Brings 'em home to Liza

Chorus
