One night as I rambled down by the sea shore
And wind, it did whistle and the waters did roar
I heard a fair maiden make a pitiful sound
It sounded so lonesome in the waters around

I never will marry, I'll be no man's wife
I accept to live single all the days of my life

My love's gone and left me the one I adore
He's gone where I never will see him no more
The shells in the ocean shall be my dead bed
A fish in deep water swim over my head

Then she plunged her fair body in the waters so deep
She closed her blue eyes in the waters to sleep

I never will marry, I'll be no man's wife
I accept to live single all the days of my life
