Young Folk The herring song
 
     
 

herringWhat shall we do with the herring's head?
We'll turn it into an abundance of bread
Herring's head, abundance of bread
And all sorts of things

Chorus
Of all the fish that are in the sea
The herring's the king of the fish for me
Sing whack for the aira-li-do, whack for the aira-lee

What shall we do with the herring's back?
We'll turn it into a fishing smack
Herring's back, fishing smack
Herring's head, abundance of bread
And all sorts of things
Chorus

What shall we do with the herring's tail?
We'll turn it into ships and sail
Herring's tail, ships and sail
Herring's back, fishing smack
Herring's head, abundance of bread
And all sorts of things
Chorus

Herring's belly, jams and jelly

Herring's eyes, puddings and pies

Herring's fins, needles and pins

Herring's scales, buckets and pails

And any other real or imaginary body parts you can invent!

Herring's chin, peas in a tin .... [Jacob]
