Ye Mar'Ners All Penguin Book of English Folk Songs (Lloyd & Williams) Ye mar'ners all, as you pass by Call in and drink if you are dry Come spend, my lads, your money brisk And pop your nose in a jug of this. Oh mar'ners all, if you've half a crown, You're welcome all for to sit down Come spend, my lads, your money brisk And pop your nose etc. Oh tipplers all, as ye pass by Come in and drink if you are dry Come in and drink, think not amiss And pop your nose etc. Oh, now I'm old and can scarcely crawl I've an old grey beard and a head that's bald Crown my desire and fulfill my bliss A pretty girl and a jug of this. Oh when I'm in my grave and dead And all my sorrows are past and fled Transform me then into a fish And let me swim in a jug of this. Recorded by Fairport Convention on Tippler's Tales RG
