The Whale

The Whale
(Terry Fielding and Fred Dyer)
Di Di Di Di DA Di DE Di Di
They sailed from port one morning the weather it was fair
A gentle breeze it pushed them and no one gave a care
They sang and danced and laughed that night and opened up a keg
They’re out to catch the monster whale that took the captain’s
Di Di Di Di Da Di DE Di Di
The Captain said “a piece of gold for him who sees me whale”
So bend your backs and row me boys I know that we won’t fail
So bend your backs and row me lads and take me to me whale.
Tonite we’ll sing and dance and tomorrow nite we’ll sail.

They saw the whale one morning the weather it was fair

The whale it goes on living but inside it bears a scar
And if your ever neat that place a voice calls from afar
So bend your backs and row me lads and take me to me whale.

We’ll sail into the harbour no prouder man ther’ll be;
We’ll show them all we captured the monster from the…

Tonite we’ll sing and dance and tomorrow nite we’ll sail.
We’ll sail into the harbour no prouder man ther’ll be;
We’ll show them all we captured the monster from the sea
