The Little Fisherman (1918) sheet music

words by Dana Burnet, music by Eastwood Lane
Ho! jolly little fisherman with the blue eye and the basket,
Where are you going now, if I may ask it?

O, I'm going down to the rippling brook that flows beside the willow,
And I'll sit in the shade of a pretty tree, with a green moss pillow.

An' what'l ye do a sittin' there, my little fisher laddie?
Will you catch a whoppin' spotted pike, or a siller shaddie?

I'll catch nae one nor tother, lad, nor siller fish nor mottle,
I'll sit in the shade, in the shade of a tree, and drink frae a brown buttle!
