Alarm clock ringin' in the dark,
Five o'clock's an early start;
Breakfast fryin' in the pan,
Kettle boilin' for a man.

And row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

Walk the dirt road to the boat,
Anchored where she lies afloat;
Tied up at the harbour pier,
Every morn' I meet her there.

And row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

Drop the paddles o'er the side,
Dip them in the mornin' tide;
Leave the safety of the bay,
Paddle on your merry way.

And row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

Pull up to a signal spot,
Where you drop your lobster pot;
Wipe your nose off on your sleeve,
Spit into an early heave.

And row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

Finishin' off your last line,
Pick the first chore from your mind;
Nice to say the weather's fit,
Off to haul the herring net.

And row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

Now the nets and pots been hauled,
Time to check the traps and trawls;
Head the dory straight ahead,
Hope to catch your daily bread.

And row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

Not much fish out here today,
Time to go back to the bay;
Head the dory straight for home,
Tomorrow I'll be back for more.

And row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.

(FADING) Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes;
Row, row, come on row,
Up the waves and down she goes.
Row, row, come on row.
