We lost it all in one fierce affray
I stood not to fight I just walked away
Oh how I wish that I had delayed
Acting on feelings I held for a day.

Fancy me so fancy free
I'm far from home
I'm way out at sea
That's not the way I want it to be
I'm so far from home and too far from she.

Now I sail with a crew of a hundred or more
So many fine men good humour in store
And we drink in a crowd when we go ashore
But I've never felt so lonely before.

Fancy me so fancy free
I'm far from home
I'm way out at sea
That's not the way I want it to be
I'm so far from home and too far from she.

Now six months are gone since I let her go
But time sure she’ll come forever so slow
And the waves will always rise and flow
My time will still pass  but ever so slow.

Fancy me so fancy free
I'm far from home
I'm way out at sea
That's not the way I want it to be
I'm so far from home and too far from she.

Now there in this lie is a foolish game
So I've written to her saying she's not to blame
And it passed in the post with a letter that came.
She's written to say that she feels the same.
