I'm a stranger to this country from America I came
There’s few here that knows me or that can tell my name
Since there's few here that knows me I'll tarry a while
And sport with my darling throughout this green isle

Some say I am foolish some say I'm not wise
Others say I am a rambler young maids to entice
But to make them all liars come you love with me
I'll take you to America strange faces to see

And the night that we land love we'll dance and we'll sing
It's a plentiful country neither taxes nor king

Farewell lovely Molly I left on the shore
Likewise lovely Ellen I once did adore
And to you lovely Alice you're my joy and delight
I could roll you in my arms on a cold frosty night

Some marry for beauty but the flower soon will fade
Others marry for riches it's a bold saucy maid
But if ever I'll marry as plain as you'll see
The lass that is loyal is the darling for me
