Hullabaloo Belay


(Sea shanty)

1. Me mother had a boarding house,
Hullabaloo belay.
Hullabaloo bela belay,
And all the boarders were out to sea.
Hullabaloo belay.

2. A fresh young fellow called Shallo Brown…
Would follow me mother all ’round the town…

3. One day when father was on the town…
Me mother ran off with Shallo Brown…

4. Me father said. “Young man, me boy…”
To which he quickly made reply…

5. My father slowly pined away…
Because me mother came back the next day…
