Subject: Lyr Add: SIXTEEN FISHERMEN RAVING (from C Moore)

Although the album uses the title SIXTEEN FISHERMEN RAVING, it has a different title on Christy Moore's web site:

SIXTEEN JOLLY RAVERS
Wally Page

Sixteen fishermen raving, out on the town on E,
Sixteen peacocks leave their nest and go flying into mystery.
They try to cut the Spanish look, but they look so untidy.
Don't eat too much. You'll never get enough when you're flying into mystery,
Flying into mystery, when you should be out seafaring.
Run out the jib. Rig the boom. Step back, reality.

When their ship is on the ocean, their nights are so empty.
They're weary of the smelly fish and the wash of the salty sea.
Sixteen jolly ravers, each one carrying his own caul,
They believe it will keep death away when they face the angry squall.
Why face the angry squall when you could go go-go dancing?
Run out the jib. Rig the boom. Step back, reality.

To the sixteen jolly ravers, those girls look so fancy.
You could ate your fry off the back of her neck. If you want some more, say "please".
When fishermen are feeling good, they feel it musically.
They go down singing shanties to the dance floor all at sea,
To the dance floor all at sea, sixteen jolly ravers,
Run out the jib. Rig the boom. Step back, reality.
Flying into mystery, when you should be out seafaring.
Run out the jib. Rig the boom. Step back, reality.

Yad adad ada yadd a dadd a da yat ti a rat ti a rat ti a ra da
Yadd a dad a da yad adad ada yatt tye a rat tie a rat

[Sung by Christy Moore on his album "Burning Times," Sony International CD 673968, 2006.]
