Pirates of the Caribbean (OST) - My Jolly Sailor Bold

English

My Jolly Sailor Bold

Upon one summer's morning
I carefully did stray
Down by the Walls of Wapping
Where I met a sailor gay
 
Conversing with a young lass
Who seem'd to be in pain
Saying, William, when you go
I fear you'll ne'er return again
 
My heart is pierced by Cupid
I disdain all glittering gold
There is nothing can console me
But my jolly sailor bold
 
His hair it hangs in ringlets
His eyes as black as coal
My happiness attend him
Wherever he may go
 
From Tower Hill to Blackwall
I'll wander, weep and moan
All for my jolly sailor
Until he sails home
 
My heart is pierced by Cupid
I disdain all glittering gold
There is nothing can console me
But my jolly sailor bold
 
My father is a merchant
The truth I now will tell
And in great London City
In opulence doth dwell
 
His fortune doth exceed
300,000 gold
And he frowns upon his daughter
Who loves a sailor bold
 
A fig for his riches
His merchandise and gold
True love has grafted my heart
Give me my sailor bold
 
My heart is pierced by Cupid
I disdain all glittering gold
There is nothing can console me
But my jolly sailor bold
 
Should he return in pov'rty
From o'er the ocean far
To my tender bosom
I'll press my jolly tar
 
My sailor is as smiling
As the pleasant month of May
And often we have wandered
Through Ratcliffe Highway
 
Many a pretty blooming
Young girl we did behold
Reclining on the bosom
Of her jolly sailor bold
 
My heart is pierced by Cupid
I disdain all glittering gold
There is nothing can console me
But my jolly sailor bold
 
My name it is Maria
A merchant's daughter fair
And I have left my parents
And three thousand pounds a year
 
Come all you pretty fair maids
Whoever you may be
Who love a jolly sailor
That plows the raging sea
 
While up aloft in storm
From me his absence mourn
And firmly pray arrive the day
He's never more to roam
 
My heart is pierced by Cupid
I disdain all glittering gold
There is nothing can console me
But my jolly sailor bold

You should use english as not everyone speaks your native language. Also, there are some rules in the site so don't use inappropriate language!

The written lyrics are different from the video.
For example the chorus is actually only at the end.
Until he sails home. → Until he does return
Who loves a sailor bold. → 'cause she loves a sailor bold
etc.
