Hullabaloo Belay

Me mother kept a boarding house,
     Hullabaloo belay
     Hullabaloo bela belay.
And all the boarders were out to make,
     Hullabaloo belay.

There was a young fellow named Shallo Brown,
     Hullabaloo, etc.
Followed me mother all over the town,
     Hullabaloo, etc.

One day when me father was on the Crown,*
Me mother ran off with Shallo Brown,

Me father said to me, "Me boy"
To which I quickly made reply,

Me father slowly pined away,
Me mother came back on the very next day.

*In the Royal Navy
