Wild Goose Shanty


As sung by Danny Spooner, Bold Reilly Gone Away, 2009


Did you ever see a wild goose sailing o'er the ocean
Chorus: Ranzo, Ranzo, way hey
They're just like them pretty girls when they take the notion
Chorus: Ranzo, Ranzo, way hey

The other morning as I was walking down by the river
I spied a young girl with her tops'ls all a-quiver

I said, 'Pretty fair maid and how are you this morning?'
She said, 'None the better for the seeing of you'

Did you ever see a wild goose sailing o'er the ocean
They're just like them pretty girls when they take the notion
