Track Name: Sail Away Ladies (Trad. Arr. Morrison/Duffy)
Ain't no use to sit and cry (Sail away ladies sail away)
You'll be an angel by and by (Sail away ladies sail away)

Don't you rock
Don't you rock
Don't you rock em
Don't you rock em Daddy-O

I got a home in Tennessee (Sail away ladies sail away)
That's the place I want to be (Sail away ladies sail away)

Don't you rock
Don't you rock
Don't you rock em
Don't you rock em Daddy-O

Ever I get my new house done (Sail away ladies sail away)
Give my old one to my son (Sail away ladies sail away)

Don't you rock it Daddy-O
Don't you rock it Daddy-O
Don't you rock em Daddy-O
Don't you rock em Daddy-O

Ain't no use to sit and cry
You'll be an angel by and by

Don't you rock it Daddy-O
Don't you rock it Daddy-O
Don't you rock em Daddy-O
Don't you rock em Daddy-O

*whistles*

Ain't no use to sit and cry
You'll be an angel by and by

Don't you rock it Daddy-O
Don't you rock it Daddy-O
Don't you rock em Daddy-O
Don't you rock em Daddy-O

I got a place beyond this world (Sail away ladies sail away)
Gold in store for my baby girl (Sail away ladies sail away)

Don't you rock
Don't you rock
Don't you rock em
Don't you rock em Daddy-o

*hums*
(Sail away ladies sail away)
Track Name: Sing Away Ladies (Morrison/Duffy/Trad.)
Me and my brother on a bus to town
Fox & Goose and a half a crown
Goose cub fight and foxling fuss
Chuck my brother right off that bus

O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me daddio
O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me daddio

My old granny with the long black teeth
She was sitting up a tree in Washwood Heath
Police come to hose her down
Chase her all the way to Stechford town

O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me daddio
O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me daddio

Brother come home with blistered feet
Face as long as Livery Street

O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me daddio
O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me daddio

O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me daddy
O don't you rock me daddio
Don't you rock me dad
Track Name: Don't You Rock Me Daddio (Trad. Arr. Morrison/Duffy)
Me and my brother was going to town
Sing away, ladies, sing away
Riding a billy goat, leading a hound
Sing away, ladies, sing away
Hound dog bark, billy goat jump,
Sing away, ladies, sing away
Throwed my brother right over that stump
Sing away, ladies, sing away

Chorus:
Don't you rock me Daddy-O
Don't you rock me Daddy-O
Don't you rock me Daddy-O
Don't you rock me Daddy-O

My old aunty promised me
Sing away, ladies, sing away
When she died she'd will to me
Sing away, ladies, sing away
Lived so long, head got bald
Sing away, ladies, sing away
Got out the notion of dying at all.
Sing away, ladies, sing away

Chorus
