The Jackfish

That old Jackfish swimming up the stream,
I asked that Jackfish what did he mean.
Just baited a hook to catch a shad,
The first thing he bit was my old Dad.

Sing fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do I-do
Fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do-I.
Fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do I-do,
Fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do-I.

Fishpole broke and I got mad
And down to the bottom went old Dad.
I grabbed that Jackfish by the snout,
And turned that Jackfish wrong side out.

Sing fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do I-do
Fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do-I.
Fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do I-do,
Fal de rol de ee-do, ee-do-I.
