Young Folk Bobby Shaftoe

Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea
Silver buckles on his knee
He'll come back and marry me
Bonnie Bobby Shaftoe.

Bobby Shaftoe's bright and fair
Combing down his yellow hair
He's my own for ever mair
Bonnie Bobby Shaftoe


Bobby Shaftoe's tall and slim
Always dressed so neat and trim
All the lassies smile at him
Bonnie Bobby Shaftoe


Bobby Shaftoe's getting a bairn
For to dandle on his airm
On his airm, and on his knee
Bonnie Bobby Shaftoe


From Joy's childhood.
