BOLD FISHERMAN (George W. Hunt - 19th Century) There was a bold fisherman who sailed out from Billingsgate To slew the wild codfish and the bold mackerel When he arrived off Pimlico, the wind it did begin to blow His little boat it wibble-wobbled so and overboard he fell Dinkle-doodle-dum, dinkle-doodle-dum 'Twas the highly interesting song he sung Dinkle-doodle-dum, dinkle-doodle-dum Oh, the bold fisherman He wriggled and scriggled in the water, so briny He bellowed and yellowed for help, but in vain Then down he did gently glide to the bottom of the silvery tide But previously to that he cried: "Farewell, Mary Jane" Dinkle-doodle-dum, dinkle-doodle-dum 'Twas the highly interesting song he sung Dinkle-doodle-dum, dinkle-doodle-dum Oh, the bold fisherman His ghost walked that night to the bedside of his Mary Jane He told her how dead he was, said she, "I'll go mad" "Since my love he is so dead," said she, "All joy from me is fled" "I never more will happy be," and she went raving mad Dinkle-doodle-dum, dinkle-doodle-dum 'Twas the highly interesting song he sung Dinkle-doodle-dum, dinkle-doodle-dum Oh, the bold fisherman (Contributed by Mel Priddle - May 2017)
