The St Dominic Ringers (Roud 104[1]) is a song collected by George Barnet Gardiner and C Stanley Parsonson from the singing of Mr Rickard at Broomhead, Cornwall, England on 24 February 1905.

Lyrics:
Come all ye merry gentlemen
That ringing do admire
Come listen to my ditty
Your attention I require
'Tis of six jolly ringers
In St. Dominic they did dwell
There's no such set
For to be found
Within Five Hundred Mile

Chorus:
So my jolly lads be steady
Like clockwork they'll go round
The prize they'll Win
I'd boldly say
If 'tis for fifty pound
