Chorus: Come my little roving sailor Come my little roving bee Come my little roving sailor Come sailor boy won’t you marry me? Madam, I have gold and silver Madam, I have house and land Madam, I have a world of treasure All shall be at your command What care I for your gold and silver? What care I for your house and land? What care I for a world of treasure? All I want is a handsome man Madam, do not stand on beauty Beauty is a fading flower The reddest rose in yonder garden Will fade away in half an hour
I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time But that was before I met you I never saw one that I wanted for mine But that was before I met you Chorus: I thought I was swinging the world by the tail I thought I could never be blue I thought I’d been kissed, and I thought I’d been loved That was before I met you I wanted to ramble and always be free But that was before I met you I said that no woman would ever hold me That was before I met you They say that you must reap just what you have sown But darling, I hope that’s not true For once I made plans about living alone But that was before I met you
Blue out on the ocean, Oh, blues all in the air I can't stay here much longer I got no steamship fare Chorus: When my earthly trials are over Cast my body out in the sea Save all the undertaker's bills Let the mermaids flirt with me My wife controls my happy home A sweetheart I cannot find The only thing I can call my own Is a worried and a troubled mind I do not work for pleasure Earthly peace I see no more The only reason I work at all Is to drive the world from my door Blues all in my body My sweetheart's forsaken me If I ever see her face again I'm going to have to swim across the sea
