With nasty pitch to soil his hands and to sail across the stormy sea
In Scarlet Town, where I was born, There was a fair maid dwellin'
Way, hay, up she rises early in the morning!
As I roved out thro' Dublin city At the hour of twelve o'the night
Oh don't deceive me, Oh never leave me, How could you use a poor maiden so?
I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me
He sailed East, he sailed West, he sailed unto proud Turkey.
When I am king, dilly dilly, you shall be queen
Oh the ocean waves may roll, And the stormy winds may blow
Oh, all the comrades e'er I had, They're sorry for my going away
From Ushant to Scilly is thirty-five leagues
There was three men came out of the west their fortunes for to try
Alas, my love you do me wrong to cast me off discourteously
And he has drawn his good broad sword, that hung down by his knee
Come and sit by my side if you love me, do not hasten to bid me adieu
My childhood days bring back sad reflections of happy times I spent so long ago
Here's a health to all lovers that are loyal and just! Here's confusion to the rival that lives in distrust
Strange news has come to town, strange news is carried
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
And if you kiss my cold clay lips, your days they won't be long.
