Bobby Shaftoe

Bobby Shafto's gone to sea, 

Silver buckles at his knee. 

He'll come back and marry me, 

Bonny Bobby Shafto!

Bobby Shafto's bright and fair,

Panning out his yellow hair;

He's my love for evermore,-

Bonny Bobby Shafto!

Bobby Shafto's getten a bairn,

For to dangle on his arm;

In his arm and on his knee,

Bobby Shafto loves me.
