Rory Get Your Dory

In Cape Breton Highland down Nova Scotia way.
Lies a little fishing village they call it Pleasant Bay.
No one ever hurries there, a day seems like a year,
And any time you're passing by these words you're sure to hear.

Oh Rory get your Dory out, there's herring in the bay.
Do your fooling in the winter time, there's still no time to play.
Why what good is blue potatoes, without herring on the plate.
So pull up your suspenders b'y, or perhaps will be too late.

Big Willie Dan MacDonald, big Rory John McNeil.
Are the finest herring fisherman, that ever used the creel.
Known to all Cape Bretoners, from the Bay to Whitney Peir.
Big Willie Dan, and Rody John, these words your sure to hear.

Oh Rory get your Dory out, there's herring in the bay.
Put on your old Soewester b'y, and will be on our way.
A school of herring in the sea, just waiting to be caught.
Wee Alex needs a pair of shoes and the baby needs a cot.
