The Song Book
i'he first was lovely Nancy,
So beautiful and fair, The other was a virgin,
Who did the laurel wear.
I boldly stepp'd up to her,
And unto her did say, Are you engaged to any young man ?
Do tell to me, I pray. I'm not engaged to any young man,
I solemnly do swear, I mean to live a virgin,
And still the laurel wear.
Then hand in hand together
This lovely couple went ; Resolved was the sailor boy
To know her full intent; To know if he would slighted be,
When to her the truth he told : Oh no ! oh no ! oh no ! she cried,
T love a sailor bold !
