8.    "I will not hand you down my hand/'
Way down, way down; "I will not hand you down my hand,"

I'll be true to my love
If my love'Il be true to me.
9.    "O Sister, O Sister, hand down your glove,"
Way down, way down; "O Sister, O Sister, hand down your glove,"
Way down by the sea. "O Sister, O Sister, hand down your glove And you may have my own true love."
Ill be true to my love
If my love'Il be true to me.
10. "I will not hand you down my glove," Way down, way down; "I will not hand you down my glove,"
Way down by the sea. "I will not hand you down my glove, And I will have your own true love." I'll be true to my love If my love'U be true to me.
