In Lowestoft a boat was laid, Mark well what I do say! And she was built for the herring trade, But she has gone a-rovin', a-rovin', a-rovin', The Lord knows where!
They gave her Government coal to burn, And a Q.F. gun at bow and stern, And sent her out a-rovin', etc.
Her skipper was mate of a bucko ship Which always killed one man per trip, So he is used to rovin', etc.
