On day as I rambled down by the sea shore
The wind it did whistle and the waters did roar.

I heard a poor maiden make a pitiful cry
She sounded so lonesome at the waters nearby.

I will never marry, I’ll be no man’s wife
I intend to stay single, for the rest of my life.

The shells in the ocean will be my deathbed
And the fish in the water swim over my head.

My love’s gone and left me, he’s the one I adore
I will never see him, no never, no more.

She plunged her fair body in the water so deep
She closed her pretty blue eyes in the water to sleep.

I will never marry, I’ll be no man’s wife
I intend to stay single, for the rest of my life.
