The Roving Kind (Guy Mitchell) cho: She had a dark and a roving eye-i-i And her hair hung down in ring-a-lets She was a nice girl, a proper girl But - one of the roving kind. As I cruised out one evening upon a night's career I spied a lofty clipper ship and to her I did steer I hoisted (heisted) out my sig-a-nals, which she so quickly knew And when she saw my bunting flag, she immediately hove too-oo-oo. I took her for some fish and chips and treated her so kind And hardly did I realize she was the rovin' kind I kissed her lips, I missed her lips and found to my surprise She was nothin' but a pirate ship rigged up in a dis-gui-se. So come all ye good sailor men who sail the wintry sea And come all ye apprentice lads, a warning take from me Beware of lofty clipper ships, they'll be the ruin of you-ou For it was there that she made me walk the plank and pushed me under too-hoo-hoo. TAG: She was a nice girl, a proper girl; But one of the rovin' kind.
