Come my own one, come my fair one,
Could you fancy a poor sailor lad

And your clothes smell much of tar,
So be gone you Jack Tar.
If I am ragged love and I am dirty love,
I have silver in my pocket love

On her bended knees she fell,
For I love a sailor lad so well.
Do you think that I am foolish love,
For to wed with a poor country girl

I will whistle and sing,
Some other girl shall wear the ring.
I am frolicsome, I am easy,
And I don't give a single pin my boys
