Bye bye Roseanna

The boats are sailing round the bend,
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
All loaded down with fishermen,
I won’t be home tomorrow.
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
I won’t be home tomorrow.

A dollar a day ’s a sailor’s pay,
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
It’s easy come, easy slip away,
I won’t be home tomorrow.
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
I won’t be home tomorrow.

Oh, Roseann, sweet Roseann,
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
I’m going away, but not to stay,
But I won’t be home tomorrow.
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
I won’t be home tomorrow.

We’re sailing north, across the bay,
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
We won’t be back for many a day,
I won’t be home tomorrow. (Zwaaien met pet)
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
Bye bye, my Roseanna.
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
I won’t be home tomorrow.
