I'm looking for a song I learned as a small child in school. The lyrics are:
    Mistress Moore lives on the shore
    She has daughters three and four
    Eldest one is twenty-four
    Married to a sailor

    When the sailors come ashore
    How they rattle
    How they roar
    Happy then is Mistress Moore
    Married to a sailor

I think there is more to it than this, but that's all I remember. I have never been able to find out anything about this song--or find the song anywhere!

Sounds a bit like "Bobby Shafto"? Same air?

Amazon calls it Mistress Moore Married to a Sailor, and it's available for download (for a fee). Tune sounds very close to "Bobby Shaftoe." Here are the lyrics, as I hear them - same as above, but with a nonsense chorus.

MISTRESS MOORE MARRIED TO A SAILOR
    Mistress Moore lives on the shore
    She has daughters three and four
    Eldest one is twenty-four
    Married to a sailor

    CHORUS
    Baloo, Baloo, Baloo, Bee,
    Baloo, Baloo, Baloo, Bee,
    Baloo, Baloo, Baloo, Bee,
    Married to a sailor

    When the sailor comes ashore
    How they rattle
    How they roar
    Happy then is Mistress Moore
    Married to a sailor
    CHORUS

    Mistress Moore lives on the shore
    She has daughters three and four
    Eldest one is twenty-four
    Married to a sailor

    CHORUS

This song was going through my head; only 3 hits on Gooogle for it. We used to sing this in grammar school in LA back in the 40's - 50's. Miss Juanita Teager, the visiting music teacher brought it into the class along with "The Ash Grove."

I learned this song too in elementary school in Massachusetts in the fifties. It was printed in our music book, but I don't remember the name of the book.
