I'M A NATIVE OF PEEL

I'm a Native of Peel, and I think, for a meal, That there's northen' like priddhas an' herrin'. I was reared on the Quay, so I foller the say.An' it's middlin' good fishin's I'm gerrin'. On five nights in the week, I've me livin' to seek. But on Saturday night and on Sunday. I am always ashore, and I say " Traa dy lioor," If I go back to work on the Monday.

Then here's to the hake and the herrin'. And here's to the win' blowin' free, To the blue sky above, and the gel that I love, Here's a health to our bhoys on the sea.

On a Sunday I'm seen, in a gansey that's clean, On the promenade railin' discussin', All the newses that's in, and my mates' kith and kin Or, it's mebbe the baby I'm nussin'. Once a year at Kinsale, I -am bravin the gale, And the wife and the childher I'm lavin', But when back safe from harrum, I'll be buying a farrum, With the nice birra money I'm savin'.

Then here's to the hake and the herrin'. And here's to the win' blowin' free, To the blue sky above, and the gel that I love, Here's a health to our bhoys on the sea.

-Aw! I'll be mortal gran', when I'm farmin' the lan' And no longer at say I'll be driftin', For I'm jus' the right man to be purron the plan, And collections at Chapel be liftin'. I am not what you'd call a bad spayker for all, My position will be quite commandin' When I'm made by the crowd a Commissioner proud, Then-it's lek-for the Kays I'll be standin'.

Then here's to the hake and the herrin'. And here's to the win' blowin' free, To the blue sky above, and the gel that I love, Here's a health to our bhoys on the sea.
