Three years ago, when Jack and Joe set sail across the foam,
They vowed a fortune each would earn, before returning home.
In just a year Jack gained his wealth, and Bailed for home that day,
And as the pals shook hands to part, poor Joe could only say:

"Give my love to Nellie, Jack, kiss her once for me,
The fairest girl in all this world I know you'll say is she;
Treat her kindly, Jack, old pal; tell her I am well."
His parting words were, "Don't forget to give my love to Nell."-

Two years had passed when Joe at last gained wealth enough for life,
Across the foam he sailed for home, to make sweet Nell his wife;
But soon he learned that Jack and Nell one year ago were wed:
he now regrets, in sobs and frets, that he had ever said: - Chorus.

They chanced to meet upon the street: said Joe, "You selfish elf,
The next girl that I learn to love, I'll kiss her for myself;
But all is fair in love, they say, and us you've gone And wed,
I'll not be angry with a pal, so once again he said:- Chorus.
