Lyrics
In Amsterdam there lived a maid,
Mark well what I do say!
In Amsterdam there lived a maid,
An' she wuz mistress of her trade,
I'll go no more a-ro-o-vin' with you fair maid.

Chorus:
A-rovin', a-rovin',
Since rovin's bin my ru-i-in,
We'll go no more a-rovin',
With you fair maid.

One night I crept from my abode,
Mark well what I do say!
One night I crept from my abode,
To meet this fair maid down the road.
I'll go no more a-ro-o-vin' with you fair maid. (Chorus)

I met this fair maid after dark,
Mark well what I do say!
I met this fair maid after dark,
An' took her to her favorite park.
I'll go no more a-ro-o-vin' with you fair maid. (Chorus)

I took this fair maid for a walk,
Mark well what I do say!
I took this fair maid for a walk,
An' we had such a lovely talk.
I'll go no more a-ro-o-vin' with you fair maid. (Chorus)

I put me arm around her waist,
Mark well what I do say!
I put me arm around her waist,
She says, "Young man, yer in great haste!"
I'll go no more a-ro-o-vin' with you fair maid. (Chorus)

I put me hand upon her knee,
Mark well what I do say!
I put me hand upon her knee,
She says, "Young man, get back to sea!"
I'll go no more a-ro-o-vin' with you fair maid. (Chorus)
