Lyrics

Lightly may the breeze blow
And smoothly may the waves flow
Swiftly may the boat go that my lads in.
He sits and rows so tightly
Or in the dance so sprightly
So gracefully and lightly
Oh who's so blithe as he.
LIghtly may the boat row, the boat row, the boat row,
Lightly may the boat row that my lads in.
I know that he's true hearted, true hearted, true hearted,
He promis'd when we parted to come to me again
LIght may the barque row, the barque row, the barque row
Light may the barque row that my lads in.
He wears a blue jacket, a blue jacket, a blue jacket
He wears a blue jacket and a dimple in his chin.
LIght may the boat row, the boat row, the boat row
Light may the boat row that my lad's in
Lightly may the boat row, the boat row, the boat row
Lightly may the boat row that my lad's in.
