A-Rovin’ (Maid of Amsterdam)

Lyrics

(Sea shanty)

1. In Amsterdam I met a maid,
Mark well what I do say.
In Amsterdam I met a maid
A-stroll-ing on the promenade.
I’ll go no more a-rovin’ with you, fair maid.

Refrain
A-roving, a-roving, Since roving’s been my ru-i-in,
I’ll go no more a-rovin’ with you, fair maid.

2. I took that fair maid for a walk,
Mark well what I do say,
I took that fair maid for a walk
And we had such a loving talk,
I’ll go no more a-roving with you, fair maid. Refrain

3. I put my arm around her waist…
So slim and trim and tightly laced… Refrain

4. I took that maid upon my knee…
Said she, “Give over! Let me be!”… Refrain
