Caroline and Her Young Sailor Bold

There lived a rich Nobleman's daughter
Caroline is her name we are been told
One day from her drawing room window
She admired a young sailor bold

She cried - I'm a Nobleman's daughter
My incomeís five thousand in gold
I forsake both my father and mother
And Iíll marry young sailor bold

Says William- Fair lady remember
Your parents you are bound to mind
In sailors there is no dependence
For they leave their true lovers behind

And she says - There's no one could prevent me
One moment to alter my mind
In the ships Iíll be off with my true love
He never will leave me behind

Three years and a half on the ocean
And she always proved loyal and true
Her duty she did like a sailor
Dressed up in her jacket of blue

When at last they arrived back in England
Straightway to her father she went

Oh father dear father forgive me
Deprive me forever of gold
Just grant me one favor I ask you
To marry a young sailor bold

Her father looked upon young William
And love and in sweet unity
If I be spared till tomorrow
Itís married this couple shall be
