Lyrics
Was you ever in Quebec launching timber on the deck
Where ye’d break your bleedin’ neck ridin’ on a donkey

chorus: Way, hay, an’ away we go! Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way, hay, an’ away we go! Riding on a donkey!

Was ye ever in Timbuktoo where the gals are black an’ blue
Where they waggle their backsides too riding on a donkey

chorus: Way, hay, an’ away we go!

Was ye ever in Vallipo, where them gals put on a show
Waggle and wriggle with a roll ‘n’ go, ridin’ on a donkey

chorus: Way, hay, an’ away we go!

Was ye ever down Mobile bay, screwin’ cotton all the day
A dollar a day is a white man’s pay, riding on a donkey

chorus: Way, hay, an’ away we go!

Was ye ever in London Town where, them gals they do come down
To see the king in a golden crown, riding on a donkey

chorus: Way, hay, an’ away we go!

Was ye ever down Frisco Bay, where the gals all shout hooray
Here comes Johnny with his three years pay, riding on a donkey

chorus: Way, hay, an’ away we go!

Was ye ever off Cape Horn, where your backside’s never warm
When ye wish to hell you’d never been born, riding on a donkey
