Handsome Molly lyrics

Well I wish was in London
Or some other seaport town
Set my foot in a steamboat
Sail the Ocean Round

Refrain:
Saling round the ocean
Sailin' round the sea
I think of Handsome Molly
Wherever she may be

Well I saw her at church last Sunday
She passed me on by
I knew her mind was changin'
By the rovin' of her eye

* Refrain

Now do you remember Molly
When you give me your right hand
Said if you ever married
That I would be the man

* Refrain
