Windy Old Weather or Fish of the Sea Come all you fishermen, listen to me I'll sing you a song of the fish of the sea In this windy old weather Stormy old weather When the wind blows We'll all pull together Up jumped the herring, the king of the sea He sang out, "Oh skipper, you cannot catch me" Up jumped the mackerel with spots on his back He sang out, "Oh skipper, Come square your maintack" Up jumped the cod with his great bulging eye He sang out, "Oh skipper, your rig is too high" Up jumped the sunfish, the smallest of all He sang out, "Oh skipper, come haul your trawl, haul" Up jumped the crab with his great long claw He sang out, "Oh skipper, you'll run her ashore" Up jumped the flounder, lies flat on the deck He sang out, "Oh skipper, don't step on my neck" recorded by Dildine Family, MacColl SOF
