Danny Spooner version: Little Fish

There's a song in my heart for the one I love best
And her picture is tattooed all over my chest

Chorus
Yo ho little fishy don't cry don't cry
Yo ho little fishy don't cry don't cry

Little fish when he's caught he fights like a bull whale
And he thrashes the water with his long narrow tail

There are fish in the sea there ain't no doubt about it
As good as the ones that ever came out of it

Now the crew are asleep and the ocean's at rest
And I'm singing this song for the one I love best


Eric Bogle version: Little Fishy

Now the crew are asleep and the ocean's at rest
And I'm singing this song for the one I love best

Chorus
Yo ho little fishy don't cry don't cry
Yo ho little fishy don't cry don't cry

Little fish when he's caught well he fights like a whale
And he thrashes the water with his long narrow tail

Well the crew are asleep and the weather is fine
And the captain's on deck laying out other lines

Well the crew are asleep and the ocean's at rest
And I'm singing this song for the one I love best


Bandoggs version: Little Fishes

Oh the crew are asleep and the ocean's at rest
And I'm singing this song to the one I love best

Chorus
Hey ho little fishes don't cry don't cry
Hey ho little fishes don't cry don't cry

The ship's underway and the weather is fine
And the skipper's down aft hanging out extra lines

Little fish when he's caught he fights like a bull whale
That thrashes the water with his mighty tail

Oh the crew are asleep and the ocean's at rest
And I'm singing this song to the one I love best
