Track Name: Come My Little Roving Sailor
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
Track Name: Before I Met You
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
Track Name: Let the Mermaids Flirt with Me
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
