The Lyrics

When fishing boats go out,
Hope the sturgeon are stout,
Roe gain.
Sturgeon hard to be found;
They used to abound,
Roe slain.

Got a bite!
Got a bite!
Got a bite!
Roe gain.

I reel till I'm blue,
Get no help from the crew,
No gain.
Soon the fish is gone;
Hope it goes back to spawn,
Roe gain.

In the bight,*
In the bight,
In the bight,
No main.**

Then a squall is spawned;
I can't keep my cap donned,
Blown 'way.
The crew makes a crack,
Heard behind my back:
"No mane."

We alight,
I go right
To doc: "Write

**as in "bounding main"
