  1. As I walked by the dockside one evening so fair
    To view the salt waters and take in the salt air
    I heard an old fisherman singing a song
    Now Fiddlers Green is a place I've heard tell
    Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumper
    No more on the docks I'll be seen
    Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip mates
    And I'll see you someday on Fiddlers Green
  2. Where the fishermen go if they don't go to hell
    Where the skies are all clear and the dolphins do play
    And the cold coast of Greenland is far, far away
    Where the skies are all clear and there's never a gail
    Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumper
    No more on the docks I'll be seen
    Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip mates
    And I'll see you someday on Fiddlers Green
  3. And the fish jump on board with one swish on their tail
    Where you lie at your leisure, there's no work to do
    And the skipper's below making tea for the crew
    Now I don't want a harp nor a halo, not me
    Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumper
    No more on the docks I'll be seen
    Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip mates
    And I'll see you someday on Fiddlers Green

Just give me a breeze on a good rolling sea
I'll play me old squeeze-box as we sail along
With the wind in the riggin' to sing me a song
Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumper
No more on the docks I'll be seen
Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip mates
And I'll see you someday on Fiddlers Green
