Jolly Old Sailor Jolly old sailor took a notion For to go across the sea Went to say goodbye to Sally BId her always constant be. DO not cry my dearest Sally Take the baby on your knee, I'll be back in six months later Asking you to marry me. I will buy you sheets and blankets I'll buy you a wedding ring And I'll buy a basket cradle For to rock your baby in. Jolly old sailor came back to Liverpool Went to see his Sally dear, Sally said,"You silly sailor I'm married to a Grenadier." note: A Johnny Todd relative.
