W: W:Now then Holland is a lovely land, and on it grows fine grain W:Sure it is a place of residence for a soldier to remain W:Where the sugar cane is plentiful and the tea grows on each tree W:I never had the but one sweetheart, and now he's far far away from me. W: W:Says the mother to the daughter: give o'er your sore lament W:For there's men enough in Galway for to be your heart's content. W:If there's men enough in Galway, alas there are none for me W:Since these high winds and stormy seas have come between my love and me. W: W:I will wear no swaithe around my waist, no combs all in my hair W:No handkerchief around my neck for to save my beauty fair W:And never will I marry until the day I die W:Since the low low lands of Holland have come between my love and I.
