This morning as I rambled down by the seashore
The wind it did whistle, and the waters did roar
But I heard a fair damsel make a pitiful sound
It sounded so lonesome in the waters around

“I never will marry, I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life
The shells in the ocean shall be my deathbed
The fish in deep water swim over my head”

She plunged her fair body in the waters so deep
And she closed her blue eyes in those waters to sleep
My love’s gone and left me, the one I adore
And she’s gone where I never will see her no more

So I never will marry, I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life
The shells in the ocean shall be my deathbed
The fish in deep water swim over my head

I never will marry, I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life
