THE ROVING KIND (Jesse Cavanaugh / Arnold Stanton - - Adaped from the English sea shanty, "The Pirate Ship") Guy Mitchell - 1950 The Weavers - 1950 Rex Allen - 1951 (She had a dark and a rovin' eye-i-eye) (And her hair hung down in ring-a-lets) (She was a nice girl, a proper girl) (But one of the rovin' kind) As I cruised out one eve-a-ning upon a night's career I spied a lofty clipper ship and to her I did steer I heisted out my sig-a-nals, which she so quickly knew And when she saw my bunting fly, she immediately hove too-oo-oo (She had a dark and a rovin' eye-i-eye) (And her hair hung down in ring-a-lets) (She was a nice girl, a proper girl) (But one of the rovin' kind) I took her for some fish and chips and treated her so fine And hardly did I realise she was the rovin' kind I kissed her lips, I missed her lips and found to my surprise She was nothin' but a pirate ship rigged up in a disgui-i-ise (She had a dark and a rovin' eye-i-eye) And her hair hung down in ring-a-lets (She was a nice girl, a proper girl) (But one of the rovin' kind) So come all ye good sailor men who sail the wint'ry sea And come all you apprentice lads, a warnin' take from me Beware of lofty clipper ships, they'll be the ruin of you For it t'was there that she made me walk the plank and pushed me under too-hoo-hoo (She had a dark and a rovin' eye-i-eye) (And her hair hung down in ring-a-lets) She was a nice girl, a proper girl But one of the rovin' kind (She was a nice girl, a proper girl) But one of the rovin' kind
