The Roseabella

: O, we're going on board the Roseabella :
We're going on board, right down to board
The saucy Roseabella

2. : Farewell ye ladies of London town :
We hate to leave, but we're going on down
To board the Roseabella

3. : She's a deep water ship with a deep water crew :
She could hug the shore, but damned if we do
Aboard the Roseabella

4. : Around Cape Horn where the dolphins play :
Around Cape Horn is a mighty long way
Aboard the Roseabella

5. : Pretty Nancy is my love true :
She could handle this bully crew
Aboard the Roseabella

6. : Nancy brought whiskey for all the crew :
She wanted to see which man would do
Aboard the Roseabella
