Well I wish was in London or some other seaport town
Set my foot in a steamboat sail the ocean round
Sailin’ round the ocean Sailin’ round the sea
I think of Handsome Molly Wherever she may be.
Well I saw her at church last Sunday she passed me on by
I knew her mind was changin’ by the rovin’ of her eye
Now do you remember Molly when you give me your right hand
Said if you ever married that I would be the man
