​Hob y Derri Dondo

This song is by Poxy Boggards and appears on the album Bitter and Stout (2009).

I'll sing the bass if you sing the solo,
Hob Y deri dando.
All about the clipper ship the Marco Polo.
Can ye gan ye eto.
See her rolling through the water,
Jane, sweet Jane.
I wish I was in bed with the old man's daughter.

Jane, Jane, come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.
Jane, Jane come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.

Davy, Davy, comes from Nevin,
Hob Y deri dando.
An' he's got a sweet little engine.
Can ye gan ye eto.
An' he thinks so much about it,
Jane, sweet Jane.
That he canot do without it.

Jane, Jane, come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.
Jane, Jane come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.

Davy, Davy and sailor Evan,
Hob Y deri dando.
They caught a shark on the reach of Nevin.
Can ye gan ye eto.
And all they asked for was a pie dish,
Jane, sweet Jane.
Thought they washed them bits of sharkfish.

Jane, Jane, come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.
Jane, Jane come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.

Sally Brown she's a bright mulatto
Hob Y deri dando.
She drinks rum and she smokes tobacco
Can ye gan ye eto.
But Sally Brown what is the matter?
Jane, sweet Jane.
She's a lovely girl but I can't get at her

Jane, Jane, come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.
Jane, Jane come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.

I'll sing the bass if you sing the solo,
Hob Y deri dando.
All about he clipper ship the Marco polo.
Can ye gan ye eto.
See her roling through the water,
Jane, sweet Jane.
I wish I was in bed with the old man's daughter.

Jane, Jane, come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.
Jane, Jane come to the glen,
To sing of praise to Johnny Fach Foyn.
