Well, I wish I was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'd set my foot on a steamboat
And sail the ocean 'round

While sailin' around the ocean
Sailin' around the sea
I'm thinking of handsome Molly
Wherever she might be

Oh remember, oh dear Molly
When you gave me your right hand
You said if you were to marry
That I would be your man

Well, now you broke your promise
Go and marry who you please
While my poor heart is a breakin'
You're goin' at your ease

While sailin' around the ocean
Sailin' around the sea
I'm thinking of handsome Molly
Wherever she might be

Well, she goes to church on Sunday
She passes me on by
I can tell her love is changin'
By the rovin' in her eye

Her hair is like a raven
Her eyes as black as coal
Cheeks they shone like lilies
Out in the mornin' glow

While sailin' around the ocean
Sailin' around the sea
I'm thinking of handsome Molly
Wherever she might be

While sailin' around the ocean
Sailin' around the sea
I'm thinking of handsome Molly
Wherever she might be

While sailin' around the ocean
Sailin' around the sea
I'm thinking of handsome Molly
Wherever she might be
