Written and Composed by Harry Dacre.

On my honor, Katie Connor is the grandest girl you'll meet,
I'm mashed on her, quite a goner, she's just nice enough to eat,
Near the water I first caught her. in a little fishing town,
But just lately she's turned stately, and my brain's turned upside down.

Sweet Katie Connor, I dote upon her,
Kate, Kate, as sure as fate, you'll have to marry me,
Or else I'll have no notion of dividing in the ocean.
And mashing with the mermaids at the bottom of the sea.

When she's colder, I have told her how those mermaids long for me,
How they blessed me And caressed me when I've dived in open sea;
Then she chaffs and only laughs, says go And mash them right away;
Snaps her Augers, still she lingers long enough to hear me say:-Chorus.

Then we parted, then I started for the mighty ocean brink,
Kate looked squeamy, she could see me take a brick to make me sink;
Near the water she bethought her: "Jack come back "-said I, too late.
Jack, my jewel, don't be cruel, come back Jack And marry Kate.

Sweet Katie Connor, I dote upon her;
Kate, Kate, as sure as fate, she's going to marry me;
So now I have a notion of diving in the ocean
And mashing with the mermaids at the bottom of the sea.
