Donkey Riding

Were you ever in Quebec
Stowing timber on a deck
Where ye'd break yer bleeding neck
Ch. Riding on a donkey?

Full Chorus
Way, hay and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hay and away we go 
Riding on a donkey

Were ye ever in Timbuktoo
Where the gals are black and blue
And the shake their bustles at you
Ch. Riding on a donkey

Were you ever in Vallipo
Where them gals put on a show
Waggle and a wriggle and a roll and go
Ch. Riding on a donkey

Were you ever down Mobile Vay
Screwin' cotton all the day
Dollar and a half is a white man's pay
Ch Riding on a donkey

Were you ever in Canton
Where the men wear pigtails long
An' the gals play hong-ki-kong
Ch. Riding on a donkey

Were you ever in London Town
Where them gals ther do come down
To see the king with a golden crown
Ch. Riding on a donkey

Were you ever in Mirramashee
Where we tie up to a tree
And the skeeters do bite we
Ch Riding on a donkey

Were you ever in Broomielaw
Where them Yanks is all the go
And the gals dance heel and toe
Ch Riding on a donkey

Were you ever in Frisco bay
Where the gals all shout hooray
Here comes Johnny with his three months pay
Ch. Ricing on a donkey

Were you ever off Cape Horn
Where your backside's never warm
When you wish ter hell ye'd never been born
Ch.Riding on a donkey
