The Waverley Polka
Last updated: 02.02.20
"The Waverley Polka" is a song I used to sing the chorus of when it was sung by Brian Kelly in the Idle Fellows. He maintained that it got from a certain Jim Brown. Internet searching has revealed nothing. This is a jolly song of sailing to and from Rothesay (sic). The song is obviously fairly modern with its references to "North Sea Oil" and ".....Russian hydrofoil".
