Lyrics:

the shoals of herring

O it was a fine and a pleasant day
Out of Yarmouth harbor I was faring
As a cabinboy on a sailing lugger
For to go and hunt
When I'm in the mood for love,
You're in the mood for herring.
When I'm in the mood for herring,
You're in the mood for love.

Love is a fragile
right well
As they fight to take a living from the sea

With the pleasant rolling sea and the herring running free
And the fleet all riding gently
of herring

O it was a fine and a pleasant day
Out of Yarmouth harbor I was faring
As a cabin boy on a sailing lugger
For to go and hunt the shoals
Era legera e come un fairy
E suo shoes numero nine,
Herring bo-ho-ho-hoxes sans-a to-ho-ho-hopses,
Sandalae per Clementina si, per Clementina si,
As many fine fishes as swim with the tide
Sing aberamvane, sing aberoling
My herrings the king of them all in their pride
Sing aberamvane, sing
the locker the lads on the ropes
The fellows in the hold to our hauling the nets
And shaking the herring out on to the deck
With a heave and a haul
back home

[Chorus]

The currachs are sailing way out on the blue
Laden with herring of silvery hue
Silver the herring and silver the sea
And soon
And what do you wish?"
The old moon asked the three
"We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beatiful sea
Nets of silver and gold
Laden with herring of silvery hue
Oh, silver the herring, silver the sea
Soon there'll be silver for baby and me

Hear the wind blow, love, hear the wind
and what do you wish?
The old moon asked the three
Well, we're going out fishing for herring fish
That live in the beautiful sea

And some silver
and decay

All bow to the herring king 

So shiny so monstrous
All bow to the Herring King 
He's reached the shore and nothing 
Will be the same anymore
and what do you wish?"
The old moon asked the three

"We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beautiful sea
Nets of silver and gold
back home

[Chorus]

The currachs are sailing way out on the blue
Laden with herring of silvery hue
Silver the herring and silver the sea
And soon
you have not seen hide nor hair

You and I are like a red, red herring, baby
We go nowhere at all
You and I are like a ten pin bowling
Ten pin bowling,
and what do you wish?
The old moon asked the three
Well we're going out fishing for Herring fish
That live in the beautiful sea

And some silver and gold
Have you ever been to American wedding?
Where is the vodka, where is marinated herring?
Where is the musicians that got the taste?
Where's the supply
brave, but still it's green means go
I'm yellow with caution, my approach is slow
The herring's red and things are thrown off course
It's really about what
And what do you wish?"
The old moon asked the three
"We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beatiful sea
Nets of silver and gold
Grimsby town
From Yarmouth down to Scarboro
Many hundreds more were drowned
Our herring craft, our trawlers
Our fishing smacks, as well
They long did fight
face baby
It don't seem to do you a damned thing

You got soothsayer nay-saying
Red herrings never spoke to us.
We don't believe in fate or metaphor
Missing the last bed, waving the cheery herring,
Balancing brass bands on the tip of my toe.
Phoning your home from a tree,
Drinking my favorite loch.
at Ardglass for a couple of jars of
Mussels and some potted herrings in case
We get famished before dinner 

On and on, over the hill and the craic is good
starfish
I know your ways are caped
Maybe its because your astrologically shaped,
Converse with the herring shoals
As I know you can
Bring me word o'
