AMERICAN BALLADS AND SONGS 45
They had not been on board three weeks,
I'm sure it was not four, When this gallant ship she sprang a leak,
And she sank for torise no more.

A curse, a curse to that young man,
And a curse to the seaman's life, A-robbing of the house carpenter
And a-stealing away his wife!
Two little boys going to school,
Two little boys they be; Two little boys going to school
To learn their ABC.
"0, will you toss a ball with me,
Or will you throw a stone? Or will you wrestle along with me
On the road as we go home?"
"I will not toss a ball with you,
Nor will I throw a stone, But I will wrestle along with you,
On the road as we go home."
