Now gather round you sailor boys, and listen to my plea
For I was a real damned fool in the port of Liverpool

Two pounds ten and sixpence was my pay
By a girl by the name of Maggie May
Oh, Maggie, Maggie May, they've taken you away
For you robbed so many a sailor, and skinned so many a whaler

She was cruising up and down on Canning Place
So, being a sailor, I gave chase
Oh, Maggie, Maggie May, they've taken you away
For you robbed so many a sailor, and skinned so many a whaler

No shoes, or shirt, or trousers could I find
They're down in Kelly's knock-shop, number nine"
Oh, Maggie, Maggie May, they've taken you away
For you robbed so many a sailor, and skinned so many a whaler

When I slept with you last night ashore
And she'll never roam down Paradise Street no more
Oh, Maggie, Maggie May, they've taken you away
For you robbed so many a sailor, and skinned so many a whaler
