Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

The Golden Vanity

Oh, there was a lofty ship and she sailed on the sea

And the name of that ship it was the Golden Vanity

She feared she would be taken by a Spanish galilee

As she sailed along the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands

She sailed along the lowland sea

And we hadn’t been a-sailing a week but scarcely three

When the lookout man had sighted a Spanish galilee

And he says we’ll all be sunk to the bottom of the sea

As we sailed along the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands,

We sailed along the lowland sea

Then up steps the cabin boy just the age of twelve and three

And he says to the captain, “What will you give to me

If I swim alongside of your Spanish galilee

And I sink her in the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands

Sink her in the lowland sea?”

“Oh, I will give you silver and I will give you gold,

And the hand of my daughter if you will be so bold

As to swim alongside of that Spanish galilee

And to sink her in the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands

Sink her in the lowland sea.”

Then that boy he bared his breast and overboard jumped he

And swam till he came to that Spanish galilee

Then with his little drilling tool he bored holes three

And he sank her in the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands

He sank her in the lowland sea.

Then the cabin boy turned round and back again swam he

And he called for the captain to haul him from the sea

But the captain would not heed for his daughter needed he

So he left him in the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands

Left him in the lowland sea.

Then the crew they hauled him up but on the deck he died

And they wrapped him in his blanket so very soft and wide

Then they cast him overboard to drift upon the tide

And he sank beneath the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands

He sank beneath the lowland sea.

Oh, there is a lofty ship and she sails on the sea

But she sails without a cabin boy the age of twelve and three

And she fears she will be taken by a Spanish galilee

As she sails along the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands

She sails along the lowland sea.
