Way hey and a way we go donkey riding donkey riding,
Way hey and away we go riding on a donkey.

Was you ever in Quebec launching timber on the deck ,where ya
Break a bleeding neck riding on a donkey.

Way hey and a way we go donkey riding donkey riding,
Way hey and away we go riding on a donkey.

Was you ever round Cape Horn where the weathers never warm,
Wish to god you'd never been born riding on a donkey.

Way hey and away we go donkey riding donkey riding,
Way hey and away we go riding on a donkey.

Was you ever in Miramichi where they you tie up to a tree,
Have a girl sit on your knee riding on a donkey.

Way hey and a way we go donkey riding donkey riding,
Way hey and away we go riding on a donkey.

Was you ever in Fortune Bay hear the girls all shout hurray,here
Comes dad with dead months pay riding on a donkey.

Way hey and a way we go donkey riding donkey riding,
Way hey and away we go riding on a donkey.

Was you ever in Fredericton seeing the king he does come down,
See the king in his golden crown riding on a donkey.

Way hey and a way we go donkey riding donkey riding,
Way hey and away we go riding on a donkey.

Way hey and a way we go donkey riding donkey riding,
Way hey and away we go riding on a donkey.
