"Bobby Shafto's gone to sea,

Silver buckles on his knee,

He'll come back and marry me,

Bonny Bobby Shafto.

Bobby Shafto's bright and fair,

Combing down his yellow hair;

He's my ain for evermair

Bonny Bobby Shafto.

Bobby Shafto went to court

All in gold and silver wrought

Like a grandee as he ought

Bonny Bobby Shafto.

Bobby Shafto rode a race

Well I mind his bonny face

Won it in a tearing pace

Bonny Bobby Shafto.

Bobby Shafto throws his gold

Right and left like knights of old

Now he's left out in the cold

Bonny Bobby Shafto.

Bobby Shafto's gettin' a bairn

For to dangle on his airm

In his airm and on his knee

Bonny Bobby Shafto."

 

Out of interest he was the MP here in 1761 :o
