Lyrics

My love is on the water, let him sink or swim
If he can be without me then I'll be without him
My love he is a youthful boy but younger though am I
And countless times he's told me that he'll marry me or die

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free

Our meeting is a pleasure but the parting is a grief
A false hearted cruel man is worse than a thief
A thief he will steal from you but leave you with a heart
A false hearted lover he will pick your soul apart

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free

I have been forsaken but my heart forewarned
And surely he's mistaken if he thinks that I'll mourn
I'll take off the black dress and I will wear the green
The shards of ice within my heart will never more be seen

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free

My love is on the water, let him sink or swim
If he can be without me then I'll be without him
My love he is a youthful boy but younger though am I
And though I'm fair I will not dare to love more 'til I die

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free
