Tinker & me go by St. Thomas 15 days on 7/17/2000

        Hur-ra, my jolly boys,
         Fine time o' day.
        We pull for San Thamas, boys,
         Fine time o' day.
        San Thamas hab de fine girl,
         Fine time o' day.
        Nancy Gibbs and Betsy Braid,
         Fine time o' day.

                "Fine Time o' Day"

A West Indian rowing shanty. As given by Trelawny Wentworth in West India Sketchbook, 1834; quoted in Roger D Abrahams, Deep the Water, Shallow the Shore.

(We didn't catch any whales but we did pat a bunch of fishes on the head at Coki Bay.)
