A Great Big Sea Hove in Long Beach

A great big sea hove in Long Beach,
     Right fal-o-ral tad-dle did-dle i-do,
A great big sea hove in Long Beach,
And Granny Snooks she lost her speech,
     To me right fol-di-dy fol-dee.

A great big sea hove in the Harbour
And hove right up yo Keough's Parlour

Oh, Mother, dear I wants a sack
With beads and buttons down the back

"Me boot is broke, me frock is tore
But Georgie Snooks I do adore.

Oh, fish is low and flour is high
So Georgie Snooks he can't have I

But he will have me in the fall
If he don't I'll hoist my sail
And say goodbye to old Canaille.

Note: Fish is low and flour is high is a sort of Canadian
  "Forty Cent Cotton and 'Leven Cent Meat". Long Beach is on the
Southwest Arm running into Trinity Bay on the East Coast.
