I'se The B'y (I Am The Boy)

This song is by Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers and appears on the album Makin' For The Harbour (1986).

I'se the b'y who builds the boat
I'se the b'y that sails her
I'se the b'y that catches the fish
And brings them home to Liza
Hip your partner Sally Tibbo
Hip your partner Sally Brown
Fogo, Twillingate, Mortens Harbor, all around the circle

(Kevin)
Hold it
Right there
Now boys
That was a perfectly good song
Until you got your dirty gams on the guitar
I know you can play an accordion Ray
But, let me tell you
You're doing it all wrong
Now boys let me tell you
This is the way we play, "I'se the b'y" in better circles
Now watch this, but
This part on the front is where we do the instrumental work
Now normally of course this is done by an orchestra
Orchestra very large proportions

(RAY)
We can, we can accompany you later on

(Kevin)
You can
You may providing you can do it Ray
Let's try it from the top then shall we
Now listen to me
Pretty good so far
I'm the boy who builds the boat
I'm the boy who sails her
I'm the boy who catches the fish
And brings them home to Liza, Liza, Liza
Hip your partner Sally Tibbo
Hip your partner Sally Brown
Fogo, Twillingate, Mortens Harbor, all around the circle
I took Liza to a dance
Faith that she could travel
Every step that she did take
Was up to her knees in gravel, gravel
Every step that she did take
Was up to her knees in mud
Filthy mud
For I'm the boy
(He's the b'y)
I'm the boy
(He's the b'y)
I'm the boy who builds the boat
Ime the boy
(He's the b'y)
I'm the boy
(He's the b'y)
Brings them home to Liza
(Accordian break)
Liza, Liza, Liza, Liza, Liza, Liza
La la la Liza
La la la Liza
La la la Liza, Liza
La la la Liza
Builds a boat
Brings them home
Maggoty Fish
No good for winter
I can buy them as good as dat in Bonavista
Liza

Thank you very much, thank you very much indeed
