ye mariners all lyrics – fairport convention

oh, ye mariners all, as you p*ss by
call in and drink if you are dry
come spend, my lads, your money brisk
and pop your nose in a jug of this
oh, ye mariners all, if you’ve half a crown
you’re welcome all for to sit down
come spend, my lads, your money brisk
and pop your nose in a jug of this
oh, ye gentlemen all, as you p*ss by
call in and drink if you are dry
call in and drink, think naught amiss
and pop your nose in a jug of this
and now i’m old and can scarcely drawl
have an old grey beard and a head that’s bald
fell my desire, fulfil my bliss
a pretty girl and a jug of this
oh, when i’m in my grave and dead
and all my sorrows are past and fled
transform me then into a fish
and let me swim in a jug of this
oh, ye mariners all, as you p*ss by
call in and drink if you are dry
come spend, my lads, your money brisk
and pop your nose in a jug of this
