Or even MICK JAGGER!!!:-

Handsome Molly

I wish I was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'll set myself on a steamship
And I'll sail the ocean round.

While sailing around the ocean
While sailing around the sea
I dream of handsome Molly
Wherever she might be.

Her hair's as black as raven
Her eyes as black as coal
Her teeth are like lilies
That in the morning glow.

Oh, don't you remember, Molly
You gave me your right hand
You said that if you married
Well I would be your man.

And now you've gone and left me
Go on with who you please
My poor heart is aching here
Lying at your ease.

And I go down to the river
When everyone's asleep
I dream of handsome Molly
And I sit right down and weep.

Repeat verses 1 & 2.
