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. JB apr96
