Two different songs, Guest guest.

The first one is
sung by the Beverly Sisters

THE FERRY BOAT INN
Jimmy Campbell & Don Pelosi   1950

Down at The Ferry Boat Inn,
Everybody's making merry;
Down at The Ferry Boat Inn,
Waiting for the river ferry.

Everyone joins in the song
When papa plays his mandolin.
Fill up your glasses and let's be gay,
Sing your blues away,
Tarara-boom-de-ay!
Give all your troubles a holiday,
Down at The Ferry Boat Inn.

Down at The Ferry Boat Inn,
Everybody's making merry;
Down at The Ferry Boat Inn,
Waiting for the river ferry.

Everyone joins in the song
When papa plays his mandolin.
Fill up your glasses and let's be gay,
Sing your blues away.
Give all your troubles a holiday,
Down at The Ferry Boat Inn.

Down at The Ferry Boat Inn,
Everybody's making merry;
Down at The Ferry Boat Inn,
Waiting for the river ferry.

Everyone joins in the song
When papa plays his mandolin.
Fill up your glasses and let's be gay,
Sing your blues away,
Tarara-boom-de-ay!
Give all your troubles a holiday,
Down at The Ferry, whoopee!, Inn.

***********************
The second excerpt was
sung by the Andrews Sisters...youTube:

"Ferry Boat Serenade" was released on 10/5/2008. It was written by DI LAZZARO, ELDO / PANZERI, MARIO.

I have never been aboard a steamer
I am just content to be a dreamer
Even if I could afford a steamer
I will take the ferry boat every time

I love to ride the ferry
Where music is so merry
There's a man who plays the concertina
On the moonlit upper deck arena

While boys and girls are dancing
While sweethearts are romancing
Life is like a Mardi-Gras
Funiculi, funicula

Happy, we drink together
Happy, we sing together
Happy, with the ferry boat serenade

I am happy, very, very happy
When we're on the ferry
The music is so merry
There's a man who plays the concertina
On the moonlit upper deck arena, arena

I love to ride the ferry
Where music is so merry
There's a man who always plays the concertina, oh my
On the moonlit upper deck arena, by and by

While the boys and girls are dancing, oh dancing
While, while the sweethearts are romancing
Life is like a Mardi-Gras
Funiculi, funicula

Happy, we cling together
Happy, we sing together
Happy with the merry boat serenade

I love to ride the ferry
Sailing, sailing where, where the music is so merry
There's a man who just plays the concertina
On the moonlit upper deck arena

All the while the boys and girls are dancing
Look around and you see sweethearts romancing
Life is like a Mardi-Gras
Funiculi, funicula

Happy, we cling together
Happy, we sing together
Happy, with the ferry boat serenade

Walthamstow should keep The Ferry Boat at Tottenham Hale in mind if they ever need to move again...

Guest post at 03 Dec 13 - 09:46 PM was mine without my cookie. No idea to what Guest at 04 Dec 13 - 06:30 PM is referring.
