Thread Name: Any May songs?
Subject: RE: Any May songs?
I LOVE MY SAILOR BOY - From Franz Rickaby, Ballads and Songs of the Shanty-Boy (1926), p. 203.
Apparently from M. C. Dean's The Flying Cloud.

Abroad as I rambled one morning in May,
So carelessly I rambled down Liverpool's streets so gay.
I overheard a fair maid, and this was all her cry,
"And let my friends say what they will, I love my sailor boy."
