The first day she was cold and still.
I wooed with all my might;
And I had melted half her chill
And more than half by night.
Fling out the silver sail, my boys,
And set the tackling free,
We'll scare the tired world with noise,
The rovers of the sea.

The second I bewitched her soul
With kisses soft and warm.
She sighed, refused, then yielded whole,
And loved me like a storm.
Fling out the silver sail, my boys,
And set the tackling free,
We'll scare the tired world with noise,
The rovers of the sea.

The third was surely best of all.
And yet -- I cannot say.
But now the winds and waters call;
So it's up and hurry away.
Fling out the silver sail, my boys,
And set the tackling free,
We'll scare the tired world with noise,
The rovers of the sea.
