The Irish Rovers - The Bonnie Lady lyrics

All you sea barren men you're bound to sail again
Far away from your mooring down in Portsmouth
With your mast on high and wavin' goodbye
To the lassies you left on shore

I've a fine strong crew and I tell them what to do
I'm the captain of the ship The Boonie Lady
She my joy and my pride and she's twenty meters wide
And they call her the ship The Bonnie Lady

So haul down the riggin' for were bound to sail away
Across the raggin' ocean and were sailin' out today
And if we do return you're bound to hear us say
We'll be going to sea once more

I've a fine strong crew and I tell them what to do
I'm the captain of the ship The Boonie Lady
She my joy and my pride and she's twenty meters wide
And they call her the ship The Bonnie Lady

We'll my shipmates and me we sail from sea to sea
With the wind a whistlin' through the sails
Though the crew gets no rest they think that I'm the best
Cause I bail them one and all out of jail

I've a fine strong crew and I tell them what to do
I'm the captain of the ship The Boonie Lady
She my joy and my pride and she's twenty meters wide
And they call her the ship The Bonnie Lady

We've a vast haul of rum a cargo we will run
From along the far off shores of Haiti
With the brisk salt air just blowin' through me hair
At the wheel of the ship The Bonnie Lady

I've a fine strong crew and I tell them what to do
I'm the captain of the ship The Boonie Lady
She my joy and my pride and she's twenty meters wide
And they call her the ship The Bonnie Lady

I've a fine strong crew and I tell them what to do
I'm the captain of the ship The Boonie Lady
She my joy and my pride and she's twenty meters wide
And they call her the ship The Bonnie Lady

I've a fine strong crew and I tell them what to do
I'm the captain of the ship The Boonie Lady
She my joy and my pride and she's twenty meters wide
And they call her the ship The Bonnie Lady
