Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey

Was you ever in Quebec
Launchin' timber on the deck?
Where ya break your bleedin' neck
Ridin' on a donkey

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey

Was you ever 'round Cape Horn
Where the weather's never warm?
Wished to God you'd never been born
Ridin' on a donkey

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey

Was you ever in Miramichi
Where ye tie up to a tree
An' the girls sit on your knee?
Ridin' on a donkey

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey

Was you ever in Fortune Bay
I hear the girls all shout, "Hooray!"?
"Here comes dad with ten weeks pay
Riding on a donkey"

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey

Was you ever in Fredericton
See the King he does come down?
See the King in his golden crown
Riding on a donkey

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey

Way hey and away we go
Donkey riding, donkey riding
Way hey and away we go
Ridin' on a donkey
