A ROVING

At number three old England square
Mark well as I do say
At number three old England square
My nancy Dawson she lived there
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

A roving A roving since rovings been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

My Nancy Dawson she lived there
Mark well as I do say
She was a lass surpassing fair
She'd bright blues eyes and golden hair
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

A roving A roving since rovings been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

I met her first when home from sea
Mark well as I do say
Home from the coast of Afrikee
With pockets lined with good money
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

A roving A roving since rovings been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

I didn't tell her stories true
Mark well as I do say
I didn't tell her whoopers too
Of the gold we'd found in Timbucktoo
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

A roving A roving since rovings been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

But when she'd spent my blooming skrew
Mark well as do say
And the whole of the gold from Timbucktoo
She cut her stick and vanished too
I'll go no more aroving with you fair maid

A roving A roving since rovings been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

A roving A roving since rovings been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid

A roving A roving since rovings been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid
