[Verse 1]
There was a ship that sailed all on the lowland sea
And the name of the ship was the Golden Vanity
And we feared she would be taken by the Spanish enemy
As she sailed upon the lowland, lowland, lowland
Sailed upon the lowland sea

[Verse 2]
Then up spoke our cabin boy and boldly out spoke he
And he said to the captain "What will you give to me
If I swim along the side of the Spanish enemy
And I sink her in the lowland sea?"

[Verse 3]
"Oh I will give you silver and I will give you gold
And my own fair daughter your bonny bride shall be
If you'll swim along the side of the Spanish enemy
And you sink her in the lowland, lowland, lowland
Sink her in the lowland sea

[Verse 4]
Then the boy he made him ready and overboard sprang he
And he swam to the side of the Spanish enemy
With his brace and auger in her side he bored holes three
And he sank her in the lowland sea
