Hullabaloo Belay

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

A fresh young fellow called Shallo Brown,
Hullabaloo belay
Hullabaloo bela belay.
Would follow me mother all 'round the town,
Hullabaloo belay.

One day when father was on the town,*
Hullabaloo belay
Hullabaloo bela belay.
Me mother ran off with Shallo Brown,
Hullabaloo belay.

Me father said young man, "Me boy"
Hullabaloo belay
Hullabaloo bela belay.
To which he quickly made reply,
Hullabaloo belay.

Me father slowly pined away,
Hullabaloo belay
Hullabaloo bela belay.
Because me mother came back the next day.
Hullabaloo belay.
