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.
