Pretty little Sarah was sweeping up the hall
Had to move her apron-strings to make a little room
Her master he came to her and unto her did say
"What is that that you've got underneath your apron?"

"Oh, nothing sir, oh nothing, oh nothing sir" said she,
"Nothing but a muslin gown me mummy gave to me,
I had nowhere to put it to keep it nice and clean
So I tucked it snugly underneath me apron"

A few months later a baby boy was born
Born without a father, without a home at all
Her master he came to her and unto her did say
"Now I know what you had underneath your apron.

"Now was it by a tinker, or was it by a clown,
Was it by a soldier boy who fights for England's crown?"
"Oh, no it was by a sailor who sails the raging Main
And he raised his Union Jack beneath me apron."

"Oh, was it in the kitchen or was it in the hall?
Was it in the parlour or in the house at all?"
"Oh, no, it was in the garden, up against the wall
Where he raised his Union Jack beneath me apron."

So come all you local ladies, this warning take by me,
Never let a sailor lad an inch above your knee
For if you do you'll rue the day he left you in the lurch
And raised his Union Jack beneath your apron.
