What’ll I do with my herrings’ heads
I’ll make them into loaves of bread
I’ll make them into loaves of bread
And all sorts of things.
Herrings’ heads loaves of bread
And all sorts of things.

What’ll I do with my herring’s eyes
I’ll make them into puddings and pies
I’ll make them into puddings and pies
And all sorts of things.
Herring’s eyes puddings and pies,
Herring’s head loaves of bread
And all sorts of things.

What’ll I do with my herring’s fins
I’ll make them into needles and pins
I’ll make them into needles and pins
And all sorts of things.
Herring’s fins needles and pins,
Herring’s eyes puddings and pies,
Herring’s head loaves of bread
And all sorts of things.

What’ll I do with my herring’s belly
I’ll make them it a lass and call her Nelly
I’ll make them a lass and call her Nelly
And all sorts of things.
Herring’s belly a lass called Nelly,
Herring’s fins needles and pins,
Herring’s eyes puddings and pies,
Herring’s head loaves of bread
And all sorts of things

What’ll I do with my herring’s back
I’ll make it a lad and call him Jack
I’ll make it a lad and call him Jack
And all sorts of things.
Herring’s backs a lad called Jack,
Herring’s belly a lass called Nelly,
Herring’s fins needles and pins,
Herring’s eyes puddings and pies,
Herring’s head loaves of bread
And all sorts of things.

What’ll I do with my herring’s tail
I’ll make it a ship with a beautiful sail
I’ll make it a ship with a beautiful sail
And all sorts of things.
Herring’s tails ships and sails,
Herring’s backs a lad called Jack,
Herring’s belly a lass called Nelly,
Herring’s fins needles and pins,
Herring’s eyes puddings and pies,
Herring’s head loaves of bread
And all sorts of things.
