Feeny Brown is the Belle of Bermuda,
Ay, oh, Feeny!

Spend my money on Feeny Brown!

Give 'er a dollar an' she ask for another,
Ay, oh, Feeny!
Give 'er a dollar an' she ask for another,

Feeny Brown was the whirliest Mulatta,
Ay, oh, Feeny!

Spend my money on Feeny Brown!

Give 'er a dollar an' she ask for another,
Ay, oh, Feeny!

Feeny Brown, always chaw tobacco,
Ay, oh, Feeny!

Ay, oh, Feeny!
Give 'er a dollar an' she ask for another,
Spend my money on Feeny Brown!

I got this shanty from Talithia (Nelson) MacKenzie, a friend and singer formerly of the Boston area and now of Scotland, who sang it around Boston in the early 1980's. I believe Talithia got it from Roger Abrahams's Collection Deep The Water, Shallow The Shore.
