Three little boats went out to sea
Manx answer to Kesh?
"I’ve just recorded a CD with the schwester called Tree Baatyn Beggey (translates as Three Little Boats - a joke because the tune of the same name is our answer to the Kesh - i.e. overplayed :-)"
CD: “Kirsty And Katie Lawrence: Tree Baatyn Beggey” - minus this tune
