Come buy my fine herrings,
My fine silver herrings,
Come buy my fine herrings,
That's just returned from sea.
Come buy, come buy, you are too late,
Mark how they are selling
Whilst the merry bells shall ring.

We cast a net so long at sea (3 times)
And a very fine catch had we.

We cast our net all on the deep (3 times)
And the devil of a fish catched we.
