Donkey Riding

Traditional Arrangement The Black Family
Was you ever in Quebec? Launchin' timber on the deck Where you break your bleedin' neck Riding on a donkey Wey, hey and away we go Donkey riding, donkey riding Wey, hey and away we go Riding on a donkey Was you ever round Cape Horn Where the weather's never warm You wish to God you'd never been born Riding on a donkey Chorus Was you ever in Mobile Bay Screwing cotton all the day A dollar a day is Paddy's pay Riding on a donkey Chorus Was you ever in Miramashee Where you tie up to a tree And the girls sit on your knee Riding on a donkey Chorus Was you ever in Canton Where the men wear pigtails long And they all move honky kong Riding on a donkey Chorus Were you ever on the Broomilaw Where the Yanks are all the go And the boys dance heel and toe Riding on a donkey Was you ever in London town See the King he does come down See the King in his golden crown Riding on a donkey Chorus Was you ever in Liverpool Bay See the Judy's shout hooray Here comes our Tommy with his 10 months pay Riding on a donkey Chorus
