We be three poore mariners,
newly come from the seas,
We spend oure lives in jeopardy
whiles others live at ease:

Shall we goe daunce the round
and shall we go daunce the round?
And he that is a bully boy,
Come pledge me on the ground.

We care not for those martiall men
that do our states disdain;
but we care for those merchantmen
that do our states maintain.

To them we dance this round,
and to them we dance the round.
And he that is a bully boy,
come pledge me on this ground.
