Harbour Lecou

As I rowed ashore from my schooner closeby
a girl on the beach sure I chance to espy
her hair it was red and her bonnet was blue
her place of abode was in harbour lecou

Oh boldy I asked her to walk on the sand
she smiled like an angel and held out her hand
so I buttoned me gurnsy and hove way me chew
in the dark rollin waters of harbour lecou

My ship she lay anchored far out on the tide
as I strode along with that maid on my side
I told her I loved her I said Id be true
and I winked at the moon over harbour lecou

As we walked on the sands at the close of the day
I thought of my wife who was home in Torbay
I knew that she'd kill me if she only knew
I was courting this lassie in harbour lecou

As we passed a log cabin that stood on the shore
I met an old comrade I sailed with before
he treated me kindly, saying jack how are you?
Its seldom I see you in harbour lecou

And as I was parting this maiden in tow
he broke up my party with one single blow
he said regards to your mrs and your wee kiddies too
I remember her well she's from harbour lecou

I looked at this damsel a standin 'long side
her jaw it just dropped and her mouth opened wide
and then like she-cat upon me she flew
and I fled from the furies of harbour lecou

So come all ye young sailors who walk on the shore
beware of old comrades you sailed with before
beware of the maidens with the bonnets of blue
and the pretty young damsels of harbour lecou.
And the pretty young damsels of harbour lecou.
