"Donkey Riding"

[Chorus:]

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey.

Was you ever in
Quebec
Launchin' timber on the deck?
Where ya break yer bleedin' neck
Ridin' on a donkey!

[Chorus]

Was you ever 'round
Cape Horn
Where the weather's never warm?
Wished to God you'd never been born
Ridin' on a donkey.

[Chorus]

Was you ever in
Miramichi
Where ye tie up to a tree,
An' the girls sit on yer knee?
Ridin' on a donkey

[Chorus]

Was you ever in
Fortune Bay
See the girls all shout, "Hooray!"?
"Here comes dad with ten weeks pay
Riding on a donkey."

[Chorus]

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]
