Of all the wives as e'er you know,
Yeoho! lads! ho!
There's none like Nancy Lee,
I trow,

See there she stands an' waves her hand upon the quay,
An' ev'ry day when I'm away she'll watch for me,
An' whis per low when temp ests blow, for Jack at sea;
Yeoho! lads! ho!

The saillor's wife the sailors star shall be
Yeoho! we go across the sea;
The sailor's wife the sailor's star shall be,
The sailor's wife his star shall be.
