I's the B'y

I's the b'y that builds the boat
And I's the b'y that sails her
I's the b'y that catches the fish[1]
And brings them home to Liza. (or Lizer)

Chorus: Hip yer partner, Sally Tibbo'
Hip yer partner, Sally Brown
Fogo, Twillingate, Moreton's Harbour
All around the circle!

Sods and rinds[2] to cover your flake[3]
Cake[4] and tea for supper
Codfish in the spring o' the year
Fried in maggoty butter.

Chorus:

I don't want your maggoty fish
They're no good for winter
I could buy as good as that
Down in Bonavista.

Chorus:

I took Liza to a dance
As fast as she could travel
And every step that she did take
Was up to her knees in gravel.

Chorus:

Susan White, she's out of sight
Her petticoat wants a border
Old Sam Oliver in the dark
He kissed her in the corner.

Chorus:
