I saw three ships a-sailing,
A-sailing, ay, a-sailing,
From Swansea Bay to Mandalay,
A sailing, ay, a-sailing,
Hie away!

I saw three rogues a-riding,
A-riding, ay, a-riding,
From Bangor town to County Down,
A-riding, ay, a-riding,
Hie away!

I saw three soldiers marching,
A-marching, ay, a-marching,
From Waterloo to Timbuctoo,
A-marching, ay, a-marching,
Hie away! --- Hie away!
