Bobby Shaftoe

(Marry me? You must be joking!)


Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea,
Silver buckles on his knee.
He'll come back and he'll marry me,
He's my Bonnie Bobby Shaftoe.


(Silver Buckles making himself look fancy. Where is my silks and laces he promised?
Where is my finery? Fat chance)


Bobby Shaftoe went to sea,
Silver buckles on his knee.
He'll come back and he'll marry me,
He's my Bonnie Bobby Shaftoe.
He thinks that he'll come back and marry me
He's my Bonnie Bobby Shaftoe.


Ha ha! Who does he think he is? Gone away for a year, sailing and singing and fishing. Marry me?
Ha ha, who does he think he is!
