A ship I’ve got in the north country called the Golden
And I fear it will be taken by the spanish galalie

To the captain spoke the cabin boy “What’s in for me if
I destroy
The Spanish galley on the sea as we sail by the
lowlands low?”
The captain spoke to the cabin boy “More than you can
Your own ship you’ll get with a crew on board
As we sail by the lowlands low”

And we sail by the lowlands low
At night the boy bared his breast and sprang
Into the sea with his heart in his hand
He swam to the spanish galleon as she lay by the
lowlands low
Some were playing cards, some were playing dice
He surprised them all with his whispering knive
Flames were dancing in broken eyes
As they burned by the lowlands low

The cabin boy returned to the labour side he said
“Captain, take me in! I’m drifting with the tide!”
“Your courage is only exeeded by your foolishness!” he
“No one is getting rich today by the lowlands low”

“The burning spanish galleon is yours to own, my son.
It was a pleasure cheating you and don’t you forget to
Down on your ship!” the cabin boy kept yelling till he
was gone.
He drowned by the lowlands low
