Lyrics

The water is wide, I cannot get o'er
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

There is a ship and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not so deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim

I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking that she was a trusty tree
But first she bent, aye, and then she broke
So did my false love to me

For love is handsome and love is fine
And love's a pleasure when first it's new
But love grows old, aye, and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew
