Apologies for the lack of posting but this week has not been a good week. For this reason I am posting an old favourite to cheer myself up.
Bobby Shaftoe Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea, Silver buckles on his knee; He'll come back and marry me, Bonny Bobby Shaftoe. Bobby Shaftoe's bright and fair, Combing down his yellow hair, He's my ain for evermair, Bonny Bobby Shaftoe. Bobby Shaftoe's tall and slim, Always dressed so neat and trim, The ladies they all keek at him, Bonny Bobby Shaftoe. Bobby Shaftoe's getten a bairn For to dandle in his arms; In his arm and on his knee, Bonny Bobby Shaftoe. Anon
