One morning as I rambled
Down by the sea shore
The wind it did whistle
And the waters did roar.

I heard a fair maiden
Make a pitiful sound
It sounded so lonesome
In the waters around.

I never will marry
I'll be no man's wife
I expect to live single
All the days of my life.

My love's gone and left me
The one I adore
She's gone where
I'll never see her anymore.

She plunged her fair body
In the waters so deep
She closed her pretty blue eyes
In the waters to sleep.

I never will marry
I'll be no man's wife
I expect to live single
All the days of my life.

The shells in the ocean
Shall be my death bed
The fish in deep water
Swim over my head...
