W: W:Chorus: W:Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumper, W:No more on the docks I'll be seen, W:Just tell me old shipmates I'm taking a trip, mates, W:And I'll see you someday on Fiddler's Green. W: W:Now Fiddler's Green is a place I've heard tell, W:Where the fishermen go if they don't go to Hell, W:Where the skies are all clear and the dolphins do play, W:And the cold coast of Greenland is far, far away. W: W:Chorus W: W:Where the sky's are all clear and there's never a gale, W:And the fish jump on board with a swish of their tail, W:You can lie at your leisure, there's no work to do, W:And the skipper's below making tea for the crew. W: W:Chorus W: W:Now when you're in dock and the long trip is through, W:There's pubs and there's clubs, and there's lassies there too, W:Where the girls are all pretty and the beer it is free, W:And there's bottles of rum growing on every tree. W: W:Chorus W: W:Now I don't want a harp or a halo, not me, W:Just give me a breeze and a good rolling sea, W:I'll play me old squeeze box as we sail along, W:With the wind in the rigging to sing me this song. W: W:Chorus
