Shiny-O

Captain Captain you are a Dandy

Way Hey Shiny O

Captain Captain you love your brandy

Way Hey Shiny O


Won’t you ferry me over to Dover

Won’t you ferry me over to Dover

From Queenstown to Dover’s a hundred miles or over

From Queenstown to Dover’s a hundred miles or over

Captain Captain how deep is the water?

It measures one inch six feet and a quarter

Captain Captain I love your daughter

Captain Captain I love your daughter

Shiny O is the Captains daughter

For her I’d sail across the water

Hen and chickens are flying over

When she pitches she pitches into Dover

Rivers, Rivers, Rivers are a rolling

Rivers are a rolling and I can’t get over

Captain Captain you are a dandy

Captain Captain you love your brandy

    Thanks for posting the lyrics.
    I heard the song sung in a most enchanting way on the Artsmagic DVD “The Golden Age of the Caribbean Pirates”. I would love to find that recording as well.

    Best Wishes,
    Dave, the guy in the educational aisle at the library.
