Bonny Sailor Boy



Bonny Sailor Boy :




I would not have the shoemaker,

For all his work at the shoes,

But I would have the bonny boy

Who wears the tarry clothes.



For he walks upon the plain stones,

He sails upon the sea,

He wears a coat and a hairy cap,

It's a sailor -he loves me!



I would not have the blacksmith,

For all his work in the smithy,

But I would have the bonny boy

Who has my heart already.



A sailor, he loves me, ma boys,

A sailor he loves me;

And if I live another year

A sailor's wife I'll be!
