Ye Mariners All

Ye mariners all as ye pass by
Come in and drink when you are dry
Spend my lads your money brisk
And pop your nose in a jug of this

Ye tipplers all as you pass by
Come in and sit if you are dry
Spend my lads your money brisk
And pop your nose in a jug of this

Ye tipplers all if you’ve half a crown
You’re welcome all for to sit down
Come in sit down, think not amiss
To pop your nose in a jug of this

Oh now I’m old and can scarcely crawl
I’ve got a long grey beard and a head that’s bald
Crown my desire, fulfil my bliss
A pretty young girl and a jug of this

And when I’m in my grave and dead
And all my sorrows are past and fled,
Transform me then into a fish
Come let me swim in a jug of this

Ye mariners all as ye pass by
Come in and drink when you are dry
Come in sit down, think not amiss
To pop your nose in a jug of this
