lyrics

There was a young maid, a handsome young maid
There was a young maid, she lived on the shore
There was a young maid and she lived on the shore
And she cried for the loss of the one she adored
All for the love, all for the love, and it's all for the love of her Willy-o

She cut off her hair, her long golden hair,
She cut off her hair and she dressed like a man
She cut off her hair and she dressed like a man,
All for to search in a distant land
All for the love, all for the love, and it's all for the love of her Willy-o

She signed on a barque, to work on a barque
She signed on a barque and she put out to sea
She signed on a barque and she put out to sea
All for to search in a far country
All for the love, all for the love, and it's all for the love of her Willy-o

One night as she worked in the riggin' up high
Her breast fell into the pale moonlight
Her breast fell into the pale moonlight,
The sailors smiled to see the sight
All for the love, all for the love, and it's all for the love of her Willy-o

They took her below and they sent her below,
They took her below for the captain to see
They took her below for the captain to see,
He opened his vest
Out fell a breast
Who would have guessed?
They're both on a quest for their Willy-o
All for the love, all for the love, and it's all for the love of their Willy-o

The crew came below and they all came below
The crew came below and they opened their vests
The crew came below and they opened their vests
Out fell their breasts
Now you have guessed
They're all on a quest for their Willy-o
All for the love, all for the love, and it's all for the love of their Willy-o

I will sing no more and I won't sing no more
I will sing no more for I must get away
I will sing no more for I must get away
Their ship was spotted just yesterday
All for the love, all for the love, and it's all for the love of my Willy-o
