I'm a fisherman's son, got fisherman's ways

I fished with my father in my young days

I learned the fine craft of the fisherman’s trade

Just to pass to my son so he'll do the same

The sea is my lifeline the shore is my home

I've been to your cities I didn't stay long

I stared at the bright lights the dark city ways

But that's not for me, no I couldn't stay


la la la la la la

la la la la la la la

Oh, some days are rough so we roll with the waves

This living is tough and slack is the pay

But we leave with the sunrise we wake at the dawn

Singin' the fisherman's song

I'm a fisherman's son got fisherman's blood

Just hauling the lobster and jigging the cod

And if you don't like me then leave me alone

And I'll go on singing my fisherman's song
