There once was a pirate
Who put out to sea
His mates all around him
No maiden on his knee
Oh sail for a little
A little little litte
Oh sail for a little
Til she finds him

There once was a maiden
Who wandered the mead
To gather blue violets
Her mama would need
A wail through the willows
All hollow through the willows
She'll wail through the willows
'Til she finds him

The sea was so violent
The crew went below
They begged him to join them
But he would not go
Oh sail a little little
For just a little little
Oh sail for a little
'Til she finds him

Her heart was so laden
She fell by a tree
Sang of some pirate
Who haunted the sea
A wail through the willows
All hollow through the willows
She'll wail through the willows
'Til she finds him

A wail through the willows
(sail for a little)
All hollow through the willows
(the willow willows)
She'll wail through the willows
(sail for a little)
'Til she finds him

He'll sail for a little
A little little litte
He'll sail for a little
'Til she finds him

He'll sail for a little 'til she finds him
